This really is an easy one!
Perfect for a hot day when you want more than bare strawberries.
Roll out about 250g of short crust pastry and prick all over with a fork. Either lay the pastry on a baking tray or put in a fluted flan tin. Bake at 200°c for 10 – 15 mins until golden. Warm 3Tbsp of redcurrent or strawberry jam then paste it over the hot pastry. Finally cut 500g of fresh strawberries into halves or slices and arrange over the pastry, drizzle with any remaining jam and hey presto dessert!
Delicious eaten on it’s own or with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream.
It’s best eaten straight away otherwise the juicy strawberries can make the pastry soft and soggy 🙂
