1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

3 to 5 tablespoons ice water

2 tablespoons melted butter

 

STRAWBERRY FILLING

2 tablespoons C&H Golden Brown Sugar

1 teaspoon cornstarch

 

GLAZE

2 to 3 tablespoons strawberry juice (from the mashed strawberries)

1 cup C&H Confectioners Sugar

 

DIRECTIONS

PASTRY DOUGH

1.In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt.

2.Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, a pastry blender, or your hands, add butter and combine; dough will appear very crumbly at this stage.

3.Measuring one tablespoon of water at a time, mix to form dough; form into a ball and wrap the dough in plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes.

4.Remove chilled dough from refrigerator. Cut dough in half. Place one half in between two pieces of parchment paper and roll out to 1/4” thickness. Cut 6 rectangles with rectangular-shaped cookie cutter. Repeat for second dough ball.

 

STRAWBERRY FILLING

1.Add diced strawberries to a bowl. Mash with a fork and drain out any excess liquid. Reserve juice to use for glaze. Sprinkle berries with sugar and cornstarch; stir.

 

ASSEMBLY

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.Brush 6 dough rectangles with melted butter. Place 1 teaspoon berry filling onto the middle of each. Cover with remaining dough rectangles. Press edges together using the tines of a fork. Poke the top of each tart with a fork to create vent openings.

3.Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely.

 

GLAZE

1.In a small bowl, mix reserved strawberry juice with confectioners’ sugar and stir until smooth. Add additional juice or water if glaze is too thick.

2.Spoon glaze over the top of each tart. Smooth with back of spoon. Let dry completely.

3.Store tarts in an airtight container for up to one week.
