STRAWBERRY TART




This little gems-of-a-tart was made at the end of the locally grown strawberry season. The great thing about strawberries is that good strawberries can be found almost all year round!

This recipe can also be tweaked to fit any seasonal fruit. Try it with lemon curd and blueberries, peaches and mascopone cream, rasberries and raspberry glaze or a tasty mix of fresh fruit!

These desserts have that WOW factor that will leave a memorable impression!

I enjoy making and serving almost anything that is an individual serving. It's like saying, "Look, I made this just for you!"

1 recipe Martha Stewarts' Pate Brisse (Pie Dough)
2 quarts fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar
2 TBS cornstarch
Whipped cream

Make pate brisse according to directions. For recipe, click HERE.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Roll out dough.


Place dough in mini tart pans with removable bottoms.  Dock bottom of pastry with a fork.






Line pastry shells with parchment and fill with beans.




Blind bake for 15-20 minutes until done but not too brown.



Cool on wire rack and  remove from tart pans.

Meanwhile, combine sugar, 1 quart of strawberries and cornstarch in a saucepan.







Mash strawberries.



Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Simmer for 10 minutes until thick and glossy.

Cool and refrigerate until firm.

Pour cooled glaze into cooled tarts.

Slice strawberries and arrange in a fan design around the edge of the tart. Fill in with a closer circle of strawberry slices.



Add a dollop of whipped cream and serve.
