Last week we showed you how you could make Strawberry Jam as a way to use up the last strawberries of the season. Today we decided to bring you a Strawberry Tart Recipe, another delicious way to use this fantastic fruit.
During spring and summer, you'll find this classic strawberry tart in almost every pastry case in Paris. It's a dessert that beautifully celebrates the season, since the strawberries are fresh and at their peak. For us, this is one of the best desserts that summer has to offer!
