Martha Mondays: Strawberry Tart

I am back to work and made this week’s project! I had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. We got a lot done around the house, found time to take walks, and just hang out. My husband made me lunch and husband and kids made dinner, including my grandmother’s chocolate cake recipe. It was everything Mother’s Day should be. I hope all the moms out there enjoyed the day as well!

I made the strawberry tart Megan’s Cookin’ chose for our project, but it really didn’t infringe on my “I’m not cooking today” mantra. The crust was easy to put together and  I mixed up the cream cheese in the food processor. I cut the berries in half because one container I had was rotten and there wasn’t going to be enough. I used strawberry jam on top of them instead of currant jelly. I thought it looked pretty. It doesn’t compete, however, with my grandmother’s recipe for strawberry pie which I may share with you at some point!

I thought it was pretty good though. The crust was a really nice shortbread crust that I loved. I think if I didn’t know what was in this (just cream cheese and sugar) I would have liked it more! But it actually was pretty good and so simple to put together.

  1. Your pie looks so good, I was surprised that this was classed as a pie as in the UK it would be called a strawberry tart! But it was very tasty and easy to assemble. I hope you had a great Mother’s Day.

    I think Martha calls it a tart on her recipe. It is made in a tart pan. Very easy for sure!

  3. Okay! I have obviously lost the plot! I even called it start in my post!

    Love Miss Loopy!

  4. I made the tart but never got it blogged. Same with last weeks Monkey Bread. :/ I liked the tart and used some homemade rhubarb jam for the top. It was delicious but not very pretty because of the rhubarb jam.
