Strawberry and cream tart


Tarta_1Is there anyone in this world who can say “No” to a tart? I didn’t think so either!
Since Irina saw this tart on Edith’s Kitchen blog, she said “Ok, that my darling, that it’s a must do”.
So we gathered on a Sunday and made the tart, yeah that easy! And delicious! And fruity! And light! Did i mention how tasty and easy-to-do this tart is? And you can use about any given fruit!

Ingredients for the tart shell:

  • 300 g all-purpose flour
  • 150 g butter
  • 2 eggs


  • 500 g sweet cheese 
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 450g strawberries
  • 1  package of powdered gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • vanilla essence

Combine the flour, melted butter, eggs and a pinch of salt. Wrap the resulting dough with plastic foil and refrigerate it for 30 min. After that remove it from the fridge, roll out the dough so that it can fit into your tart pan. Cover your pan with the dough and remove the  excess. Fill it with dried beans or rice, prick the bottom of the shells all over with a fork and put it in the oven for 20 minutes. When ready set aside to cool.

The cream

Make a puree from strawberries. Mix the cheese with sugar. Mix the strawberries with the cheese. Put the gelatin powder in lemon juice and some water (a few drops) and let it be for 5 minutes. Mix the gelatin with the strawberry-cheese cream.  Pour the cream in the shell and refrigerate for a few hours.
