My friend Amanda and I are always sharing our love for the blend of sweet and savory. Brunch is a beautiful fusion of the two – sweet pastries and fruits paired with salty bacon and eggs, all in one meal.

When designing a brunch menu, I plan a mix of make ahead dishes and a few favorites that are quick and easy to prepare so that I can appreciate the company I’m in. This month we have been blessed entertain a lot of friends and family.

That’s why I love simple dishes made from staple ingredients like my skinny strawberry tart. It takes just 5 minutes hands on time and is a stunning addition to a brunch bar! 

You can make this strawberry tart in a full sheet if you’re serving a lot of guests, just double the strawberries and sugar. Tarts are just naturally beautiful, there’s no reason to fuss over them.

You can make this fruit tart ahead of time and keep it covered in the fridge and then serve it chilled or het it gently in the oven.

Strawberry Tart Ingredients

  • Puff Pastry – You just need one sheet of store bought puff pastry for this dessert. If you are blessed with time, you can obviously make your own pastry, but I love the convenience of the ready to use variety.
  • Strawberries – Use fresh ripe strawberries that are firm. If you can buy organic.
  • Sugar
  • Salt – Finish the tart with a small pinch of cracked salt. It really helps to bring the sweetness out and makes those strawberries pop.

Tips

  1. Use fresh strawberries – frozen strawberries will contain too much liquid. They should be firm so that they hold their shape when you bake the tart.
  2. Thaw your puff pastry sheet before use to prevent cracking.
  3. Bake the strawberry tart in a pre-heated oven so that the tart cooks evenly and the pastry puffs.

  1. I made two of these tarts for my Mother’s Day lunch, and they were delicious! The only issue that I had was that they were watery. I thought ahead of time that this may happen so I made sure to dry the strawberries before I sliced them, but even after cooking and cooling completely they “ran” quite a bit. Any suggestions?

  2. Hi Julie,
    I froze a bunch of fresh strawberries when it went on sale at our local market.
    Do you think I can use frozen strawberries?

    Thanks!
