Tuesdays with Dorie - La Palette’s Strawberry Tart

This week's recipe was simpler than most, but very tasty none the less. The tart shell on the bottom is more like a sugar cookie than a traditional crust, which balanced nicely with the strawberry jam and fresh strawberries. Since strawberries are in season now, I purchased some great ones from the store, and they didn't need much sugar at all.

My husband is a big fan of fruit centric desserts, so he happily tried this one and liked it. I didn't have any crème fraîche, so we just had it unadorned, gasp! It was still very good and easy to put together, great for an easy but elegant dessert.

Lucky! My husband won't touch any dessert without chocolate. He's berry-phobic. ;)

I think this tart stands up just fine on it's own, especially with good berries!
