- In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse oats until fine but not powder, approximately 30 seconds.
- Add whole-wheat flour, 1 cup all-purpose flour, brown sugar, and ½ teaspoon salt, pulsing to combine. Add cold butter, pulsing until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add cream, pulsing just until dough forms a ball. Wrap dough tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, approximately 1 hour.
- Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough ball to ⅛-inch thickness. Press into the bottom and up the sides of 12 (4-x-2-inch) removable-bottom tart pans. Freeze for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350˚.
- Using a fork, prick the bottom and sides of dough.
- Bake until crust is lightly golden just around the edges, approximately 8 minutes. Let cool.
- Reduce oven temperature to 325˚.
- In a large bowl, combine sugar and remaining 1½ tablespoons flour. Add buttermilk and eggs, stirring until mixture is combined. Add melted butter, vanilla, zest, juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, stirring well. Divide mixture evenly among prepared tart shells.
- Bake until filling is lightly golden around edges and almost set, 16 to 20 minutes.
- Let tartlets cool in pans for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Cover, and refrigerate until chilled, approximately 1 hour.
- Garnish with fresh strawberry slices and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
