Summer is all about FRESH FRUIT! Right now our strawberries are on and we are enjoying one of my favorite recipes...
Glazed Strawberry Tart
1 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. orange juice (the juice of about 2 oranges)
1 T. lemon juice (the juice of about 1/2 of a lemon)
orange and lemon zest (zest a little lemon and orange and throw it in!)
1 quart strawberries, hulled and sliced (more if you like)
1 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Baked tart shell
Combine the sugar, cornstarch, salt, orange juice, lemon juice and zest in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes until the sauce thickens. Spoon into a bowl to cool.
When sauce is cool, toss with the sliced strawberries. Filled the baked and cooled tart shell with the strawberry mixture.
Before serving, whip the cream with the powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread over the berry filling. Serve immediately.
** This recipe is also great with raspberries.
** I often use a regular pie crust instead of a tart shell.
