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!

  24. Hi Suzanne – As the recipe states, the tart yields 6 slices, so 6 servings.

  25. This was looking nice and taste of it delicious! Everyone enjoyed it, including my kids.

  26. This. Whipped. Cream.

    Don’t get me wrong, the tart is a total stunner. Looks just gorgeous and is so fresh and simple, really lets the strawberry shine. Also looks like a lot more work than it is, which is always nice.

    But this whipped cream!! Oh gosh the hint or lemon is so delicious, such a fresh wonderful touch on the tart. I cut the tart into 9 parts and everyone went for seconds. I definitely think that most people went back to get at the whipped cream again!

    I would make this tart again in a heartbeat for guests, but for myself I would personally prefer just fresh strawberries dipped in the whipped cream. Yum yum yum!

  27. My mouth is watering. I am gonna make this as soon as I can!

  28. The lemon whipped cream is a perfect pair with this tart! Easy to make and everyone enjoyed it.

    Two suggestions… prick the puff pastry several places so you don’t get any big bubbles forming on the bottom. And slice the strawberries fairly thick; I cut mine very thin and they released too much liquid over the long bake time.
