Rustic Strawberry Tart

rustic strawberry tart

It’s totally not the season for strawberries, but once in awhile I do find some good ones at my grocery store.

A couple of weekend’s ago I was in the mood for this strawberry tart or maybe I’m just wishing for summer. This dish makes me think of a warm summer evening. I love the combination of the sweet and savory that this tart offers. Best of all, it’s super quick to put together, perfect for a quick dessert for dinner guests.


Rustic Strawberry Tart
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 cup of strawberries, cut into bite-sized pieces. You can use different fruits and change the amounts to what you want.
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar, plus 1 tsp. for sprinkling on the crust
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 whole egg, beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Gently unfold the pie crust and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  3. In a bowl, gently mix together the fruit, sugar and cornstarch. Then pour into a strainer to release
  4. and extra juices.
  5. Pour the mixture into the center of the pie crust, leaving a 2 inch border.
  6. Fold up the uncovered border over the edge of the fruit and pinch into pleats.
  7. Brush the crust with the beaten egg, and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
  8. Bake in oven until crust is lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.
  9. Serve warm and is great with a scoop of ice cream.
