When strawberry season arrives here in Florida, it is welcomed with joy. We love the ripe and beautiful strawberries in smoothies and with pancakes. In pies and scones. You know where this is going. There isn't a recipe that doesn't go splendidly with strawberries as far as we're concerned.
I love to bake pies and tarts. Sweet or savory. I'm happy either way. There were a couple of containers of strawberries in my fridge (again) the other day and I decided it would be nice to make a nice tart. The kids were spoiled when my in-laws were here. My mother-in-law would make one gigantic one on a jelly roll sheet. At the time, strawberries weren't yet in season and she made it just with strawberry preserves. It was so nice to smell her creation baking in the oven at 9 while the kids were sleeping. She would sometimes bake one after they went to bed to surprise them with it in the morning. Yes, they remind me how sweet and thoughtful it was of her and could I sometimes surprise them with a strawberry crostata. So, I did!
Now here's the only problem with this tart...I wasn't able to get any great clicks of it. I tried and it just wasn't the most photogenic desserts. No matter what I tried, it just seemed OK. My daughter saw some of my clicks and immediately edited the ones that were hopeless and did nothing for this delicious dessert. She helped me choose the few that made her crave a slice and I hope it has the same effect on you!
I used the pasta frolla dough recipe that I always use (from my mother-in-law). It's a lovely tart dough that goes wonderfully with any filling you can dream of. You can see some step-by-step photos on how to make the crostata here on my Ricotta Crostata.
Now onto the fun part! I can't wait to share the rest of the strawberry links I can't wait to share with you!!
