I was feeling a little under the weather last week, but with Fathers’ Day coming up that weekend, I knew that I was going to have to put something together. It was certainly a case of the spirit being willing, but the flesh having to be dragged out of bed.
I decided to go with a very simple strawberry tart. The pâte sucrée was already sitting in the freezer and the crème d’amandes filling could be made in a jiffy.
The only seemingly arduous task would be getting equal sized strawberries at the local supermarket since I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get decently red ones. Fortunately, the berries on the supermarket shelves were relatively decent and I ended up having to buy only 2 large boxes.
Dad liked the tarte aux fraises well enough and I’m sure I’ll be making this classic dessert again!
