Total Time1 hr 55 mins


  • 1 1/3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup finely ground Almonds
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Grated Lemon Rind
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 6 tbsp. Butter cold and cut into pieces
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 cup Seedless Strawberry Jam
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 2 pints of Strawberries hulled and sliced in half
  • Sweetened Whipped Cream optional but yummy


  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, almonds, sugar, lemon rind and salt.
  • Mix well and then add the butter, cut it into pieces before placing it in the bowl.
  • Mix it until coarse crumbs form.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and the vanilla.
  • Add this mixture to the flour mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  • On a piece of plastic wrap, empty the dough and form a small disk.
  • Wrap the plastic wrap around the dough.
  • Place the dough in the refrigerator for more than an hour but not more than overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • While the oven is heating up, place the disk of dough on a greased baking sheet.
  • Pat the dough into a 10 inch circle. Around the edges form an edge that is about 3/4 inch high. I recommend making it a 90 degree angle on the inside of the tart because it will rise and lose some of it’s shape and ability to hold the filling if it loosely edged.
  • Using a fork, pierce the bottom of the dough all over.
  • Bake this in the oven for approximately 25 minutes or until the dough is slightly browned.
  • Place the shell on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Melt the jam with the lemon juice in a small saucepan over low heat until the lumps in the jam have all disappeared and the mixture is easily spreadable.
  • Hull and slice the strawberries in half.
  • Take 3/4 of the jam mixture and pour it onto the tart shell and spread around.
  • Then place the strawberries on top of the jam mixture with the sliced side down.
  • With the remainder of the jam mixture, take a basting brush and brush the extra mixture on top of all of the strawberries.
  • Refrigerate the tart until the jam mixture has mostly solidified. Grab some whipped cream and enjoy a sweet treat, you deserve it!!!
