FRESH FROM FLORIDA DELICIOUS RECIPE
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA— How to make Fresh from Florida recipe Florida Strawberries and Cream Tart.
3-4 cups Florida strawberries, sliced thin
1/2 cup Florida orange blossom honey
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 (9-inch rounds) prepared pie crust, homemade or store-bought
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 egg, beaten
Pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Using your favorite cookie cutters, cut out shapes using 1 of the pie crusts. Place shapes onto a baking sheet and set aside.
Place the other pie crust into a round baking dish (or small rectangle or square dish) and gently press into the pan and up the edges.
Prick the bottom with a fork, brush edges with egg wash, and bake both sheet pans for 11 to 13 minutes, or until cooked through and golden brown (the cut-out shapes may not take as long as whole pie crust).
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
In a stand mixer, or by hand, whisk together the cream cheese, honey, vanilla, and salt until smooth.
Spread, or pipe, the cream cheese mixture over the cooled pie crust.
Arrange sliced strawberries in an overlapping pattern over the entire surface. Place baked pie cut-outs over strawberries. Served immediately or chilled.
