BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Fresh From Florida shows you how to make a delicious recipe of Florida strawberry pop pastry.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 ½ cups fresh Florida strawberries, diced
  • 2 tablespoon Florida sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 box pie dough, store bought

PREPARATION

  • In a small sauce pot over medium-low heat, combine 2 cups diced strawberries, corn starch, lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla extract.
  • Cook, while stirring, until a sauce has formed, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Reserve ¼ cup of the strawberry mixture to make the glaze. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Unroll the pie dough and cut out 4 matching rectangles. In a small bowl mix the egg and water to create an egg-wash. Place an even amount of the strawberry mixture to the center of half of the rectangles, and do not overfill.
  • Leave a clean edge around the dough to seal properly. Place another piece of the cut pie dough on top of the mixture and use the tines of a fork to seal.
  • Transfer the pastries to a parchment lined cookie sheet. Use a pastry brush to apply a thin layer of the egg-wash. Sprinkle each pastry with the remaining sugar.
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. In a small bowl mash the reserved berry mixture with a fork.
  • In another bowl, add in 1 cup confectioners’ sugar and a small amount of the strawberry mixture, stir until completely combined. Adjust consistency with more confectioners’ sugar or strawberry sauce. Drizzle each tart with the glaze.
