Strawberry tart

This strawberry tart is so easy to make, I'm a tad embarrassed to share it because I'm afraid you'll think less of me and my cooking skills. To make things worse, I have this to confess: I. used. store-bought. pastry.

Eeeks.

But since a few of you so nicely asked for the recipe on my tea party post, I decided to share it anyway. Just don't judge me. Pretty please.
Ingredients
  •  1 sheet store-bought shortcrust pastry 
  • 250g spreadable cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sifted icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250g Philadelphia Cream for desserts
  • 625g hulled strawberries
  • Icing sugar, to dust
Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F). Line 20 cm-round, fluted tart tin with pastry. Trim excess pastry and lightly prick bases with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes or until pastry is cooked. Place in fridge for 30 minutes to chill.

2. Beat cream cheese, icing sugar, lemon rind and vanilla extract until combined. Beat in Philadelphia Cream.

3. Spoon into biscuit base. Place in fridge for 1 hour to chill.

4. Top with strawberries and dust with icing sugar

Looks so so delicious! I was just telling DH that I haven't made a dessert in a long time. This one looks perfect for the weather! And store-bought pastry is genius!

Wow, this looks delicious. And you know, as much as I love reading fancy food blogs with the amazing looking food all made from scratch... this is the kind of thing that I would actually consider making. For real. When I'm not pretending I'm a fancy chef with lots of patience and time. I like recipes like yours!

No need to apologize... store bought pastry is the only way to go. (It all tastes the same anyway.)

I love strawberries, so this looks delicious. Also love the pic you took with the strawberry tops cut off... too cute :)

Let me know how you like the lavender lemonade if you give it a try...

Making a dessert that looks and taste good is not an easy task. Its harder than actually cooking. Thanks for honoring my request:). Teehee.

Hee hee, I'm certainly not judging you for using store-bought pastries. We can't all be the best chefs we can at every single meal, it would be a full-time job. Actually, do you want to join my cooking club for this month? It's relaxed and definitely not about being professional chefs, just enjoying making food for loved ones.

Joei Phua said...

omggggg looks so yummy!!!!!! would love to try it out, but sadly... ive got no oven.. cant bake anything sigh...
