Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 8-ounce pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2-2 lbs strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/4 cup seedless red currant jelly


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In mixer, combine flour, butter, sugar and salt until crumbs are formed. Press dough firmly into the bottom and sides of a 9" round tart pan. Prick crust thoroughly with a fork.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. If dough puffs up while baking, use the back of a spoon to gently press it down. Cool completely.
  • Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Spread over crust. Arrange strawberry halves cut side down to form a circle. 
  • In sauce pan over medium-low heat, heat jelly until liquified. Gently brush strawberries with jelly. Let sit 20 minutes. Chill at least 1 hour.
