(FRESH FROM FLORIDA) – Check out this Fresh From Florida video recipe using delicious Florida strawberries to make a pop pastry.
■ 2 cups fresh Florida strawberries, diced
■ 2 tablespoon Florida sugar (divided)
■ 1 tablespoon cornstarch
■ 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
■ 1 tablespoon lemon zest
■ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
■ 1 teaspoon water
■ 1 cup confectioners sugar
■ 1 box pie dough, store-bought, 2 sheets
■ Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
■ In a small saucepot over medium-low heat, combine 2 cups of diced strawberries, cornstarch, lemon juice, and zest, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and vanilla extract.
■ Stir, while cooking, until a sauce has formed, about 5 minutes.
■ Remove from heat and cool.
■ Reserve ¼ cup of the strawberry mixture to make the glaze.
■ Unroll pie dough and cut out 6 matching rectangles per sheet of dough (12 rectangles total to make 6 pastries). In a small bowl mix the egg and water to create an egg wash.
■ Place an even amount of the strawberry mixture in the center of half of the rectangles.
■ Do not overfill.
■ Leave a clean edge around the dough to seal it 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.
■ Add in confectioners’ sugar and stir until completely combined. Adjust consistency with more confectioners’ sugar or water. Drizzle each tart with the glaze.
