My motto in the spring and summer is “easy does it.” The holidays and months surrounding them can be such a blur that, come spring, I just wanna let my hair down. And in every sense of the phrase, I do!
Never has my easy livin’ philosophy applied more than it does this year, as we’re preparing to welcome our first baby. I’m taking it easy in every way I can… especially when it comes to dinners and desserts!
This strawberry tart is a perfect example of simplicity at its best. I stocked up on stacks of juicy berries (a sale this girl just can’t resist) and couldn’t wait to put them to good use. Combined with flaky, buttery puff pastry and a sprinkle of sugar, the natural sweetness of the strawberries really pops.
Plopped with a dollop of lemon whipped cream, this 3-ingredient strawberry tart was an incredible treat! It’s great to serve at parties, or just to have a little sweet something to indulge in after dinner. Or before. I won’t judge.
Your prep before popping it the oven couldn’t be easier, either. Just lay out a sheet of puff pastry, arrange your strawberries over top, and dust with sugar. You could also use a sugar substitute, like I did for this tart, which still yielded deliciously sweet slices. While your tart crisps and puffs its way to pastry perfection, make your lemon whipped cream. Just another 3 ingredients for a fabulous finishing touch to the strawberry tart!
The combination of sweet pastry and tangy whipped cream will totally get you in that spring-ified mood… even if there’s still snow on the ground. I feel for you guys suffering a long winter this year!
