Lesley Walter makes the ultimate strawberry tart on ITV This Morning.
The ingredients are: 320g puff pastry ready rolled, 450g cream cheese (sweetened with a little icing sugar as required), 500g Strawberries, hulled, 4 passion fruit, 1 egg beaten with a pinch of salt, To glaze and 5 tablespoons redcurrant jelly & splash water.
To prepare the dish, Preheat the oven to 200C.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the ready rolled pastry onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Trim up the edges to neaten. Using a small sharp knife, cut a picture frame style border all the way round, cutting halfway through the pastry. Prick the inside of the border, liberally, with a fork. Brush the frame carefully with the egg. Bake for 10 -15 minutes or until cooked. If the centre rises up, gently push down with a fish slice.
Place the cool pastry case onto a large wooden board. Beat the cream cheese with the passion fruit until soft & creamy add a little icing sugar to taste. Pile this mixture into the cooled pastry case and level off.
Heat the redcurrant jelly in a pan with the water until smooth. Remove from the heat and strain through a sieve to remove any lumps. Set to one side to cool slightly.
Arrange the strawberries over the passion fruit cream and brush lightly with the redcurrant glaze. Serve on a chopping board.
