Each year, when the strawberry season comes, my children are asking me to make this old Strawberry and Pistachio Tart recipe. This recipe is a classic in my family; I work hard to make it the same as their grand-mother used to prepare it.

Strawberry and Pistachio Tart Ingredients

 

1- Pistachio Shortbread:

75g of butter
35g icing sugar
12g of almond powder
1 small egg
1 teaspoon of pistachio paste
125g of flour

2- Almond cream with Pistachio

30g of butter
30g of sugar
30g of almond powder
1 egg
1 teaspoon of pistachio paste

3- Filling

1 tablespoon of strawberry jam
500g of strawberry
40g of cut pistachios (optional, for the look of the tart)

4- Topping:

100ml of water
50g of sugar

Strawberry and Pistachio Tart Instructions

 

1- Shortbread preparation:

Work the butter and the sugar until you have a creamy mix. Add the egg, the almond powder, pistachio paste and mix well. Add the flour in 3 different shots, mix between each time. Use your hands to knead the dough. Make a ball and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Place the dough between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper. Place in a circular frame of around 23cm diameters. Keep cold for the next 15 minutes (during the time you make the Almond cream with Pistachio).

2- Almond cream with Pistachio:

In a bowl, work the butter and the sugar until you get a creamy mix. Then add the egg and the pistachio paste and mix a lot. Add the almond powder and mix until you get a real homogeneous cream.

3- Cooking:

Preheat oven to 180 °C. Pour the cream over the dough. Bake 30 minute, watch carefully, the cream should not become too dark. If needed use some baking paper to prevent it from becoming darker. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

4- Preparation of strawberries:

Wash, remove stems and dry well with a towel. Cut into 2 parts.

5- Dressing:

Coat the bottom of the tart with a thin layer of strawberry jam. Cover with sliced strawberries.

6- Last touch:

Heat 100ml water and 50 g of sugar at low temperature until it gets syrupy. Let it become warm and spread on the tart with a silicone pastry brush. You can also, for the look of the tart, add the pistachios cut as a decoration on top of the tart.

I really hope you will enjoy this tart as much as my small family did.
