This Fresh Strawberry Tart is a perfectly cool, fresh summertime dessert. Perfect to enjoy at home or even better, take it to a summer BBQ, a pool party or a cookout, and you'll be the most popular person at the party!
It's funny, as I share this post, it occurs to me that I've said a thousand times on this blog... I don't like summertime. I don't like the heat or sand or bugs or sunburn or well... most everything summer.
But there is one thing... one thing that I absolutely love about summer and that's all the fresh local fruit that's in abundance this time of year. It's almost enough to redeem the season for me (but not quite).
Here in Mississippi, summer is just getting started, but I've already had four watermelons and cartons and cartons of strawberries. Okay, so I shared with my kids, I didn't eat four whole watermelons, but you know what I mean. 😉 The watermelons we're eating straight up cold or maybe with a dash of salt.
But the strawberries... oh the strawberries are good this year! We've made strawberry shortcake, strawberry cream pies and just this week... my very first Fresh Strawberry Tart.
Fresh Strawberry Tart
As much as I hate to admit this, I've never actually made any tart before this week. I don't know why, but I always thought "tarts" were fancy. And fancy meant it must be difficult, right? But I was oh-so-wrong!
Now that I've made one, I have to say I'm in love.
First, the recipe was truly super easy. And then there was the actual dessert. The flaky crust, the creamy center, the fresh fruit on top. What's not to love?
And if that's not enough reason to impress you, other than a small amount of granulated sugar that I sprinkled over the crust, this dessert is entirely sweetened with SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener.
Having less added sugar is a bonus for everybody, right?! Especially in bathing-suit season 😉
And if you are planning to take this dessert to a cookout, you can make it ahead of time and chill it overnight. Then there's no last-minute rushing around!
Alrighty, are you ready for the recipe? There's a printable version below! Have questions? Leave me a comment!
