STRAWBERRY DEVONSHIRE TART for "Open House"



The lovely month of June means that strawberries are finally ripe on the vine and sweet for desserts!  



Last night I baked this STRAWBERRY DEVONSHIRE TART and in no time we were enjoying it!







I had cut this recipe out of a magazine many years ago:








Pastry Shell:  1 cup of flour, 1 Tb sugar, 1-2 Tb ice water, 6 Tb butter at room temperature, 1 egg yolk  Combine flour and sugar, then work in butter with fingertips.  Add egg yolk and 1-2 Tb. ice water and work with fingers until dough holds together.  Pat into a flat round and press into a 9" tart pan with removable bottom.  Bake at 375 degrees  for 15 - 18 minutes  until brown.  Cool shell







Strawberry Devonshire Tart Filling:

3 oz of softened cream cheese, 3 Tbs sour cream whipped together and spread on the bottom of the cooled shell - refrigerate


You will need: 1 1/2 quarts strawberries, 1 cup of sugar, 3 Tb cornstarch, red food coloring.  Wash and hull the strawberries. Mash  enough to fill  one cup.  Mix sugar and cornstarch.  Put 1/2 cup water and 1 cup of strawberries in medium saucepan on  stove.  Add cornstarch and sugar and boil for 1 minute until thick.  Stir in red food coloring  and cool.

Put remaining fresh strawberries on top of cream cheese filling in the pie shell stacking them from the center out.  After the cooked strawberry mixture cools, pour over fresh berries and decorate with whipped cream.  Chill.






1 3 oz cream cheese, softened, 3 Tb dairy sour cream, 1 - 1 1/2 quarts strawberries, 1 cup sugar, 3 Tb cornstarch, red food coloring

Hi Bernideen,

So nice to meet you! Your Strawberry Devonshire tart is absolutely DIVINE!! Love the photography and vignette, very charming!

Thanks for the invitation to your lovely party!:) Just linked up but my thumbnail didn't publish. Tried it again and a message came up saying that it already existed. Hope it goes through as I would hate to miss the fun!

Hi Bernideen, Thank you for inviting me to sign up to your linky. I tried but it didn't come up yet. Does that mean it will later or should I redo it? I also tried to send you an e-mail through your e-mail button but it wouldn't go either. I don't know too much about signing up for linkys but am willing to try!!! Nancy

It looks yummy. I love strawberries, but the ones I grow in the garden are very late this year.
