Strawberry Tart

Strawberry Tart: The Charm of Home
The strawberry tart from yesterday's tea is a cinch to make.  I have made tarts before; twice, and they were complete flops.  But, I am here to tell you this recipe is much easier and worked really well so I felt good about sharing it!

Strawberry Tart: The Charm of Home
I used a tart pan I was given my sponsor  It was a really nice pan that was food grade and performed well with the making of this tart. 

Mini Berry Tarts or Long Tart (which uses 1/2 the recipe)
Crust ingredients:
7 tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/4 cups granola, crushed
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a small bowl, combine butter, granola, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Pat crusts into four 4-inch tart pans (I used two tart pans and one long tart pan).  Place on cookie sheet.  Bake 5-6 minutes.  *Note: I cooked the long tart pan about 8 minutes. Cool completely.

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Fresh berries of choice

Combine all ingredients except berries and blend well.  Divide filling into 4 tarts or 2 tarts and the long tart pan or with 1/2 the recipe it will fill just the long tart pan.  Arrange berries on cheese mixture,  Chill at least 30 minutes before serving.

Recipe adapted from: Wilton

*Note: the 4-inch mini tart pans came from Walmart and were made by Wilton.

Thank you to my sponsor for supplying the rectangular tart pan.

What a lovely idea for afternoon tea, the strawberries make it look very inviting.

Popped over from Roxy's blog, lovely to meet you.

I have a pint of strawberries in the fridge and was planning on using for strawberry tea but I think you have definitely changed my mind and I will probably be baking a tart today.
Which is good because the rainy weather we're getting is positively gross! Thanks so much for linking up with us I really appreciate it!

Thanks for sharing this, Sherry! I'm hosting garden club tomorrow and think I'll give it a try, along with my shortbread cookies and fresh blueberry muffins. I'll let you know how it turns out! Sounds so easy and delicious.
