Makes 24 tarts

5-3 / 4 cups all-purpose flour

1 / 3 cup sugar

1 envelope FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast

2 tablespoons ARGO Cornstarch

1 / 2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

1 teaspoon salt

1 / 4 cup water

1 cup butter or margarine

Strawberry Filling (recipe follows)

Powdered Sugar

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, cornstarch, lemon peel, and salt. Heat milk, water, and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.

Remove dough from refrigerator; roll on lightly floured surface to 1 / 4-inch thickness. With a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut 24 circles; place on ungreased baking sheets. From remaining dough, using a 3-inch doughnut cutter, cut 24 circles and place on top of rounds. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes. Spoon Strawberry Filling into center of tarts. Return to oven; bake additional 5 minutes or until evenly golden. Remove from baking sheets; cool on wire rack. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.

Strawberry Filling: In a saucepan, combine 1 (10-ounce) package frozen strawberries in heavy syrup, thawed and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixtures clears and comes to a boil, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool.
