    Makes: 12 pieces

    • 225g prepared shortcrust pastry
    • 250g strawberries
    • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
    • 150g cream cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Thinly roll out the pastry, then with a 9cm fluted cutter, cut out 12 circles. Press them into a bun tin to make pastry cases, then prick them with a fork. Scrunch up pieces of foil and press them into each case.
    2. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and return to the oven for further 3 to 4 minutes. Leave in the tin until cool enough to move it to a transfer rack.
    3. Chop half the strawberries and place in a food processor with the icing sugar. Blend to a puree then sieve. Beat the cream cheese and vanilla, then stir in 2 tablespoons of the puree.
    4. Fill the cases with strawberry mixture. Slice the strawberries that are left and use them to neatly decorate the top. If you want, you can cut a strawberry in half without tearing off its little leaves and put it on the very top.

    Serving suggestion

    Try serving it with blueberries on top, drizzled with the remaining puree.

    Any idea's of what I could do as a side dish?  -  05 Feb 2014


    It's a good recipe and it worked out well but I didn't like the filling it tasted like yoghurt and wasn't nice against the rest of the tart. Instead I've found that using a layer of strawberry jam and another of whipped cream worked better but all in all it was a good recipe.  -  15 Oct 2013
