Strawberry Honey Pistachio Cream Tart

by Alice Currah on April 22, 2012. Updated May 3, 2012


Yesterday my family and I arrived in San Diego to start our Spring Break vacation. It’s been wonderful to be together just hanging out. From the beach to the pool, our vacation is off to a great start.

Unfortunately I will not be cooking this week but fortunately I found a photo of this Strawberry Pistachio Cream Tart I took on my iPhone I thought I would share with you. Made with a puff pastry crust and a layer of honey pistachio cream and then another layer of slightly sweetened whipped cream, this easy fruit tart tastes as good as it looks. What I love about this tart is how simple it is to put together but is elegant enough to serve as part of brunch or dessert. Hope you enjoy!

A simple but elegant strawberry tart with honey pistachio cream.
Ingredients
  • 1 (1/2 package) frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup ground pistachios
  • ¼ cup honey
  • cup heavy whipped cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 pint strawberries, stems removed and cut in half vertically
  • cup chopped pistachios
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Unfold and roll the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch square. Place the pastry sheet onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Allow the pastry to cool on the baking sheet.
  4. While the puff pastry is baking, prepare the two different creams.
  5. Using an electric mixer, whip the cream cheese, pistachios, and honey until well combined. Set aside.
  6. In a different bowl, whip the heavy cream and sugar with an electric beater until firm peaks form.
  7. Evenly spread the pistachio cream layer over the pastry followed by a layer of the whipped cream.
  8. Arrange the cut strawberries with the tips pointing up in layers of circles, starting with the outer one, making your way in.
  9. Sprinkle the tart with the shopped pistachios.
  10. Serve immediately.

Hi Alice,
Just found your blog as I was searching for an authentic Kalbi recipe (landed on your 2009 post). I love the look of your blog and how friendly it is! I can’t wait for your cookbook in June! As a mom-food blogger, I am totally obsessed with collecting cookbooks! I’m sure yours will find its way to our chaotic home and kitchen (I have 3 kids, too)!
Cheers,
Jen
