Strawberries are in season!

I love strawberries.  They're sweet and juicy.  They are delicious plain or in a dessert. I have several great recipes that use strawberries.  Strawberry Roll Cake,  Berry Cobbler, Strawberry Romaine Salad (my mom's recipe), Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberries and cream....I could go on and on.  

So on Sunday I was happy to see a big feature in the Food section of the SF Chronicle that highlighted a great dessert, a Strawberry Tart.  According to the writer it's the perfect dessert to end your Easter dinner.  Why wait until Easter?  Let's make it today!!!  So I did.

The tart is cooling in the fridge.  It's going to taste amazing.  I know this because I've tasted crumbs of the crust (yummy) and licked the spoon of the custard (double yummy.)  It has to chill 45 minutes. I can't wait to eat it.

Well, the tart was awesome.  The crust was buttery, the custard was sweet with that great vanilla bean flavor and the strawberries divine.  

Here's a link to the recipe: Strawberry Tart
Email me if it's no longer posted on the Chronicle site. I saved it.

  1. Mmmmm, that looks delicious! I'm hoping to see strawberries around here soon, but with the snow we had today, it may be a little longer...


Thanks for your feedback!
