1 7-inch tart

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup partially solidified coconut oil

  • 3 tablespoons Grade A maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon alcohol-free almond extract

  • 5 tablespoons ice-cold water, or more as needed

Filling:

  • 1 ½ cups sliced strawberries, cut into 1/4-inch slices tip to stem

  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar

  • 1 ½ tablespoons bread crumbs

  • 1 tablespoon Grade A maple syrup, or as desired

Directions

  1. Sift pastry flour, all-purpose flour, sea salt, and baking soda together in a large mixing bowl. Add coconut oil and begin incorporating into the flour using a pastry cutter or 2 knives. Continue to work oil into flour until mixture takes on a sand-like consistency, 5 to 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to mix maple syrup and almond extract into dough. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time; mix using the wooden spoon until dough is putty-like and can be formed into a disc using your hands. Wrap the dough disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes.

  2. Remove dough from the refrigerator and place the disc between 2 sheets of parchment paper. If dough feels stiff, let it rest until soft enough to roll, about 5 minutes. Use a rolling pin to roll dough into a circle slightly larger than 9-inches in diameter and roughly 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. Use a pastry wheel to trim edges to a 9-inch circle. Remove and discard the top sheet of parchment paper. Slide pastry circle, still resting on the bottom parchment paper, onto a baking sheet.

  3. Place strawberries into a mixing bowl and add about 1 tablespoon sugar; toss to coat. Mix remaining sugar and bread crumbs in a separate bowl and pour onto the center of the pastry circle and spread out evenly, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border. Gently arrange strawberries over the bread crumb mixture working from the center out.

  4. Use a pastry wheel or knife to gently score about 6 lines around the perimeter of strawberries on the pastry, allowing you to easily fold over the edges of the tart to create a crust. Place tart in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  6. Remove tart from the refrigerator. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove tart from oven and use a pastry brush to glaze top with maple syrup. Continue baking until the top and edges of crust are firm and browned, about 10 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to use the unrefined sugar of your choice in place of coconut sugar.
