Strawberry Tart Recipe

For the shortbread dough:
• 3 tablespoons butter
• 200 g flour
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 3-5 tablespoons water

For the tart filling:
• 250 g quark or whipped cream cheese
• ½ cup of sour cream
• 100 g powdered sugar
• Zest from organic lemon
• 500 g (1 lb) strawberries
• ½ cup of chopped walnuts or pecans
• 1 pack of gelatin

Preheat the oven to 225°C – 437°F

Prepare the shortbread dough:
• Knead the flour, butter, sugar, and water to smooth dough. I recommend using the hook attachment on most mixers, but you could as well use your hands.
• Cover the dough with plastic foil and place it in a fridge for 30 minutes.
• Take the dough from the fridge and roll out until ¼” or thinner.
• Move the dough (24 cm) 10-inch tart form. Make sure to cover the sides of the form as well. Prick the dough with a fork, bake for 10 minutes at 225°C.

Prepare the strawberry tart:
• Beat the quark with sour cream, add sugar and lemon zest.
• Spread the quark mixture onto the baked tart shell.
• Clean the strawberries, stem them, and cut into quarters.
• Spread the strawberries onto the quark mixture and sprinkle with chopped walnuts or pecans.
• Prepare the gelatin according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Pour the still liquid gelatin over the cake, refrigerate to set.
