Fresh Strawberry Tart
Impress anyone anytime with this free-form (or free-style, if you like) fresh strawberry tart. Roll out a ball of sweet pastry into a large round, roll the edges and crimp to create a free-form crust...which is perfect because you don't need to buy a fancy pan to make an impressive crust! After pre-baking the pastry, make a sweet and creamy cheese mixture of cream cheese, creme fraiche, sugar, egg yolk, salt, vanilla and lemon zest and bake again. When cool, cover with strawberries and coat with a shiny glaze of warmed apricot jam. Get Chef John's recipe for Fresh Strawberry Tart.
