Summertime dessert with the extraordinary flavor and aroma of fresh strawberries.



    1. Combine all dry ingredients.
    2. Add cold, cubed butter and mix until pea-sized crumbles form.
    3. Add ice water, and mix until dough comes together.
    4. Wrap and chill for one hour.
    5. Roll dough to a 12” circle.
    6. Lift dough and let it shrink back on itself.
    7. Roll again to 12” circle.
    8. Transfer dough to a greased (we used a spray) tart pan with a removable bottom.
    9. Press dough into the tart shell, and dock the bottom with a fork.
    10. Freeze tart shell for 30 minutes.
    11. Bake tart shell in a 350°F oven for 30-40 minutes.
    12. Let cool completely.
    13. Keep tart shell in pan until just before serving, to keep it from breaking.
    14. Filling: Whip room temperature cream cheese until smooth.
    15. Add Amoretti Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla #75, and mix to combine.
    16. Add sugar and mix to combine, about 3 minutes.
    17. Spread cream cheese filling into the bottom of the tart, using an off-set spatula.
    18. Working from the outside, going towards the center, drizzle the Amoretti Strawberry Swirl over the filling.
    19. Drag a knife through the lines of swirl towards the center.
    20. Slice off the tops of the strawberries. (You might not wind up using all of them.) With the pointed end facing up, slice the berries thinly and lay them around the top of the filling, using larger ones around the outside, decreasing the sizes as you work towards the center.
    21. Drizzle more strawberry swirl over the strawberries.
    22. Mix the water and the clear glaze. Heat in microwave for 10 seconds.
    23. Brush the top of the tart with the clear glaze.
    24. Chill tart for 30 minutes before serving.
    25. Remove tart from tart pan: Use an off-set spatula, remove the tart pan bottom, and place on plate for serving.
