Strawberry Tartelette

The smell of strawberries is summer for me. We have been eating strawberries for dessert almost every day since they are in season. So when I saw this recipe for Strawberry Tartelettes and how easy it was to make, I wanted to try it for a sunny afternoon. We had them as an afternoon delight with some rose lemonade with lemon juice and extra ginger.
Here's the recipe of you want to make them:
(Recipe found in the Delicious magazine Nederland - june issue)
500 gr of strawberries
180 g of sifted flour
65 g of sugar
A pinch of salt
3 egg yolks
100g unsalted butter
In a large bowl, add the flour and make a well in the center.
Add sugar, salt, egg yolk and mix slowly.
Add butter and mix well, until a smooth and homogeneous paste.  Form a ball, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Roll the dough on a floured surface and cut out 6 circles.
