Strawberry Fruit Tart

Liza MacLeod

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 10 Tbsp melted butter

Filling

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 (8 oz) blocks cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla

Topping

Directions:

  1. Start by making the crust. Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt. Add melted butter and stir until dough forms.
  2. Press mixture into a 10" or 11" tart pan with a removable bottom, pressing until the dough is smooth. Prick all over with a fork and bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely. 
  3. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes. In another large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. 
  4. Add the lemon juice and zest, and vanilla. Beat until combined. Fold into the whipped cream, then spoon into cooled crust and smooth the top. 
  5. Starting on the outside, arrange the strawberries on top of the tart in a circle until the entire tart is covered.
  6. Brush the top of the strawberry tart with the balsamic. Refrigerate until well chilled, 2 hours. Enjoy!
