Recipe: Strawberry Tart


After sharing my instagram of these yesterday, I knew I better post the recipe so y'all can stop drooling! I had some leftover strawberries and wanted to make something warm and comforting. After looking up a few recipes that seemed like entirely too much work and time, I decided to make up my own strawberry tart recipe. So if you need a yummy lazy person recipe, you are in the right place! No food processor or dough chilling needed! Plus the crunchy sugar glaze and custardy dough makes them delicious. Equally good cold and warm!

You will need
1 cup flour
2-3 tablespoons of sugar
6 tablespoons of butter
1 egg
Chopped fresh strawberries
Whip Cream
Tart Pan

Directions
Combine flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar and butter in a bowl. You can also use Earth Balance or Smart Balance instead. Stir with a fork until blended. Crack your egg and toss the yolk back and forth over a separate bowl, saving the egg white for a later step. Add egg yolk to the flour mixture and mix with a wooden spoon. Work dough into a smooth ball.


Take about a heaping tablespoon, depending on your tart pan, of dough. Lightly round into a ball and flatten in your hand so that it is bigger than the diameter of an individual tart well (Is that what it's called? I dont know!). Press in the dough to a greased tart pan, squishing the edges so that it overflows a little. It's okay if it looks a little rustic! Try not to leave any areas too thin though so the tart doesn't fall apart.


Bake the crust for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and fill each tart with your chopped fresh strawberries. Press them in a little to fill up the tarts. 


Brush each tart, strawberries and crust, with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.


Put back in the oven for 10-20 minutes or until browned. Let cool.


Pop out tarts from the pan and top with whip cream.


Enjoy!

They look so delicious Rachele :) I'd love to whip some up but strawberries are out of season now here in Australia, I'll have to remember this for Spring.  xx

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.  I have them in the oven now but I'm using peaches instead of strawberries, hopefully they turn out good! x

Hi Rachele,
Your tarts look lovely!
Random question: what type of tablet you use to draw your digital illustrations. Also, do you like it? Would you change anything about it? Does it have a camera?
I am doing my research because I want to get a great tablet for school but I don't know anyone who's got one! I think taking pictures of specimens in science labs, then later writing notes over the picture would be super helpful for studying, right? Science major dork. 
Sorry to be a little left field, it just that I am not tech savvy and need some input!
Thanks!
