Fresh Strawberry Tart

Posted on








Ingredients for 6 portions:


1/2 of our buttercrust pastry dough recipe


1 pound fresh strawberries


For the sweet cheese mixture:


8 ounces cream cheese or *fromage blanc


2 tablespoons crème fraiche


2 tablespoons white sugar


1 large egg yolk


1/4 teaspoon salt


1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, or to taste


For the glaze:


1/4 cup apricot jam (the clearer, the better), plus 2 teaspoons water, heated until brushable. Let cool a bit before applying.




*Note: my cream cheese was suspiciously thin, so your mixture will probably be thicker, and a little easier to work with.




– Bake tart shell at 375 F. for 20-25 minutes, until golden-brown, fill with cheese mixture, and finish baking for another 20 minutes, or until the pastry is browned, and the filling is set.


happy cooking.
