Strawberry-Pistachio Tart


    You are gonna love me for posting this one...Are you just imagining the burst of sweet
     Strawberries on your taste buds?? Lets me just tell you pistachios and strawberries
     were meant to be together!! YUMMY.

                                                  Strawberry-Pistachio Tart

    all purpose flour, for rolling
    1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
    1/2 cup , shelled pistachios
    2 tablespoons of sugar
    5 cups thinly sliced strawberries, ( about 1 1/2 pounds)
    1/4 cup apricot jam, warmed

    1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. One a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry
    to a 12 by 16 inch rectangle. Transfer to a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet
    and trim to make a rectangle. Freeze until firm, 10 min. With a fork, prick pastry
    all over. To prevent pastry from rising, Top with a sheet of parchment paper and
    stack another baking sheet on top. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
    2) Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine 1/4 cup pistachios and sugar and
    process until pistachios are finely ground. Sprinkle mixture on pastry, leaving
    a 3/4 inch border. Bake until pastry is deep golden about 15 to 17 minutes.
    Roughly chop remaining 1/4 cup of pistachios. Remove sheet from oven, arrange
    strawberries on pistachio mixture, overlapping slices. Brush berries with jam and
    sprinkle chopped pistachios on the border. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. Oh Val,I was just working on a post and your photo popped up on my dashboard. Good thing that wasn't on the dashboard of my car because I would have swerved right off the road. Yes, yes, yes, I do love you! I would love you more if I could taste it right now. Looks fantastic and easy too! I can see this appearing soon on our table.

    Gorgeous photos too, that's what would have caused me to swerve right off the road!

  23. Oh, my! This looks and sounds divine! Wherever do you find your recipes. They are always so unusual and amazingly delicious.

    LOVED the Butterfinger cake. I shared the recipe with my husbands co-worker and she made it for Easter. Her entire family raved. I took no credit. Told her about your blog and how amazing it is.

    Thank you for always sharing your wonderful recipes. This is one I will try when I go strawberry picking this summer.
