Strawberry Tart

Hello, Hello!

I want to share with you all today's recipe: a strawberry tart. It is quite simple, healthy, and it only takes about 25 minutes to elaborate.


Ingredients

1 and a half sheets of puff pastry
700 g. to 800 g. of strawberries
Half glass of water
1 egg
600 g. of pastry cream approximately - click here for recipe
Icing sugar for garnish (optional)


Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC.

2. Roll the first puff pastry, prick the base gently, you can do so using a fork.



3. Roll the second puff pastry, cut 8 parallel lines, about 1cm apart.



4. Paint with water one edge of the first puff pastry and then place a line of the second puff pastry on top of the edge. Using the fingers, press it slightly to seal.







5. Repeat the process with the 3 remaining edges/lines. Once finished, repeat this process again until all 8 lines are situated in the (first) puff pastry's edges. Trim the pastry that does not fit in the square (do not throw away the scraps, we can reuse them!).










6. Egg wash the edges using a pastry brush.













7. Fill the dough with baking chickpeas (or beans) and blind bake in the oven until the edges are golden - around 15 -20 minutes.











8. Remove the beans and paper, and leave it to cool on a wire rack.










9. Put the pastry cream into a pastry bag and fill the pastry homogeneously. - I always stand the pastry bag upright in a long drinking glass to fill it.























10. Wash the strawberries, dry, hull and slice them 0.5 cm thick.












11. Neatly, place the strawberries in an onverlapping linear pattern.











12. Decorate with some mint, chocolate, or simply dust it with powdered sugar.













13. Serve (EAT) it, or place it in the refrigerator until it is served.






In step number 5 I mentioned the pastry scraps. I used them as well as half puff pastry to make mini palmiers (recipe in Spanish here).




I hope you like this tasty strawberry tart :)

Have a good day!
