Sweet, Summer, Strawberries
Bake berries down to a delicious jam in this buttery tart.
It's that time of year, when beautiful strawberries and fruit pop up at supermarkets, with their glorious bright colors and luscious smells. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, and while they're just great on their own, they also bake down to a delicious jam in this buttery tart.
With a classic tart base, the sweet jam filling and crisp, cinnamon crumb topping, this tart will be a favorite all summer. You can make it in one large 10" circle tart pan, or in little mini tarts - but I made it in two rectangular pans and cut it into squares.
