Italian Strawberry Tart Recipe

 I love this time of the year when fresh locally grown fruits and berries are available at the farmers market.  This year they have a Farmers Market conveniently located right across the street from my work place in downtown, so I just can’t resist buying berries almost every week. Most of the time I am mixing them up in some Greek yogurt but every once in a while I like to bake using berries.  This dessert is not an overly sweet dessert.  It is refreshing and perfect for the summer but best of all, it is easy to make.



1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

6 Tbsp. butter- melted

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 Tbsp. milk

8-10 Fresh Strawberries

1/2 cup heavy cream- for topping



Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon.

In a mixer bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until mixture becomes fluffy and creamy. Add milk and eggs and beat for about 2 minutes.

Add in the flour mixture and mix gently with a rubber spatula; do not over work it.



Then, transfer the dough to a 9-inch tart pan, spread the dough evenly using rubber spatula.



Cut washed strawberries in half and arrange them in circle while gently pressing in to the dough.





Bake for 35-40 minutes. Let it cool for 10 minutes and sprinkle with powder sugar.

Serve it at room temperature, preferably with generous dollops of whipped cream.
