Super Simple Strawberry Tart Recipe

Most strawberry tarts are easy to make.  This one, however, is especially easy and well-suited to teaching youngsters how to navigate in the kitchen due to the fact that a pre-made pie crust is used.  If you scoff at such shortcuts, feel free to make your own!

Super Simple Strawberry Tart Ingredients

3 cups of strawberries (strawberries can be substituted, conversions here. You can also freeze your own)

1 pie crust (9-inch, frozen)

8 ounces of softened cream cheese

1/2 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Super Simple Strawberry Tart Recipe Directions

First, bake the pie crust according to the instructions included on the package, and set it off to the side to cool.

Wash and hull the strawberries.  Slice them into medium slices.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.  Transfer the mixture into the cooled pie crust, and spread it evenly around in the crust.   Arrange the sliced strawberries on top of the mixture, either stacking them or pressing them into the mixture so that the tips protrude upwards.  Place the finished tart into the refrigerator for at least one hour prior to serving.This recipe makes 6 delicious servings!
