fancy a strawberry tart?

This is hardly even a recipe, but oh so yummy!! I adapted this from a rather more complicated Martha recipe.

Fresh Strawberry Tart

What you'll need:
1 sheet frozen puff pastry
2 punnets of strawberries
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of castor sugar

What to do:
> Pre-heat your oven to about 180 degrees celcius
> Cut the puff pastry into a circle (I used a dinner plate as a template) and place on a greased tray
> Wash strawberries, remove stems, then cut each one into three lengthwise
> Put strawberries into a bowl with 1/4 cup of castor sugar and mix
> Place strawberries in concentric circles on the pastry, leaving a bit of an edge
> Spoon over any juices left in the bowl
> Sprinkle the whole thing with 1 tablespoon of castor sugar
> Pop into the oven for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is light brown
> Serve with cream and/or icecream! Enjoy!

You could pretty much use any berry for this tart, and you could also do individual sized ones.

Hope you have a tarty Tuesday!
