Ingredients

  • 2 cup strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 2 sheets ready-made puff or flaky pastry
  • 1 egg separated
  • 4 teaspoon fine semolina
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • icing sugar to dust

Method

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 210°C.
  • 2
    Place the prepared strawberries in a bowl with ¾ of the sugar and a dollop of the jam. Mix and set aside.
  • 3
    Lay the pastry sheets on a bench and cut 4 x 15cm circles (try tracing around a noodle bowl). Place the pastry discs on a greased baking sheet.
  • 4
    Brush the pastry discs with egg yolk and scatter 1 teaspoon of semolina over each. Pile ½ cup strawberries into the centre of each disc and fold the pastry up around the strawberries, pinching it into place to form a tart with an open middle. Brush the pastry edge with egg white, scatter on the sliced almonds and sprinkle on the remaining sugar.
  • 5
    Bake in the preheated oven 20-25 minutes or until golden and crispy. Warm the remaining jam and brush over the centres to make them glossy. Dust with icing sugar before serving.

Notes

These are quick and easy to assemble, so you can make more or less according to the amount of strawberries you have. Serve warm or cold, with cream or icecream. PER SERVE Energy 507kcal, 2124kj • Protein 9.6g Total Fat 24.5g • Saturated Fat 9.9g Carbohydrate 60g • Fibre 6g • Sodium 204mg
