Glazed strawberry tart

Glazed strawberry tart

Strawberry tarts are best made during the strawberry season, when the fruit is luscious and sweet - why not gather fresh from one of the Surrey "pick your own" farms? Locally-grown strawberries are often available from as early as May, but outdoor grown ones are later, so you may have to wait until June. Once you get your hands on them, roll up your sleeves, grab your rolling pin and enjoy baking this delightful dessert. You can always cheat and use ready made shortcrust pastry if you really are very pressed for time.
