Strawberry-Black Pepper Tart for Two
1 h 15 m
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Black pepper gives sweet strawberries a kick in this free-form tart. Expect some of the strawberry juices to ooze over the top of the crust while baking.”
Crust for Two (recipe follows)
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1½ cups sliced strawberries
4 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
Pinch of salt
1Preheat oven to 375°F.
2Prepare Crust for Two.
3Place parchment paper or a silicone baking mat on a work surface, dust with flour and turn the dough out onto it. Dust the dough with flour and roll into a rough 9-inch circle, dusting with flour as necessary to prevent sticking. Transfer paper or mat and the crust to a baking sheet.
4Toss strawberries with sugar, 1 teaspoon flour, cornstarch, pepper and salt in a medium bowl. Mound the strawberry mixture in the center of the crust, leaving about a 2-inch border around the outside. Pick up the edges of the crust using a spatula and fold over the berries. (The crust will not meet in the center.)
5Bake the tart until the crust is lightly browned and the filling is bubbling, 40 to 42 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes before serving.
