Strawberry Tart

This has been in my to do list for quite sometime and I guess to end this month of love in a sweet way is to make this sweet treat, so I decided to make this tart in heart shape :) Moreover with Korean strawberries in season, sold in almost all supermarkets - sweet and juicy - best timing!

Adapted from Precious Moments, this tart is delicious and you just can't get enough of it! :)
It's actually more to strawberry chilled cheesecake to me - yum! :P
Still need to improve my skills in making it look prettier though *shy*
And also I guess I have made the crust slightly too thick to my preference, still it tasted great :)

What you need:

For the crust:
188g plain flour
113g cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
⅓ cup sugar
¼ tsp salt
For the filling:
250g cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
fresh strawberries, hulled
strawberry jam for coating

Preheat oven to 180 ºC
Rub in butter to flour, sugar and salt till it become moist crumbs. Transfer the dough to pie pan and pressed firmly. Freeze crust until firm (around 10 mins)
Pricked crust and bake for about 25 – 30 mins till golden brown. Cool
In a bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar till smooth. Spread mixture evenly in pie crust
Arrange strawberries and brush heated jam. Chill for at least an hour
Remove from pan and serve

I happened to have some extra seedless grapes too, so I made another pan with a mixture of strawberries and grapes - apparently Abby prefer grapes than strawberries :)

I'm submitting this tart to "Aspiring Bakers #4: Love In The Air! (Feb 2011)", hosted by Cuisine Paradise at this LINK
