With a fluffy cream cheese filling, topped with fresh strawberries and finished with a delicious strawberry glaze, this summer strawberries and cream tart is a real show-stopper! I make mine on a homemade almond crust because it’s my favorite base for all fruit tarts. Whether you’re gluten-free or not, the combination of almond, strawberry, and cream is incredible.
I couldn’t entirely decide if this recipe is for a tart or a pie. I’ve called it a pie in the original title but it has clear similarities with a traditional fruit tart. Still, I make mine in a slope sided pie dish, so pie it is. If you want to make a traditional sweet tart crust instead of my almond pie crust I’m sure it will work wonderfully.
Strawberries are available all year round now but you’ll never find the flavor of June/July strawberries during the rest of the year. I’m writing this at the end of May and they are just starting to taste wonderful! This recipe will no doubt knock the socks off your guests for a summer party. It makes a great pot luck and feeds 6-8 people.
This strawberries and cream pie is my kids new favorite and I think I have to agree! Its suprizingly light in texture yet decadent in flavor. Its the perfect summer treat!
