Brown Sugar Strawberry Tart

Submitted By: networkoffood

This is hands down the best strawberry dessert I have ever had!
The crust crumbled and melted in your mouth. It was fantastic!
Couldnít get enough! We fought over the last piece and there was only 4 of us eating it! I Canít say enough!
Some tips about strawberries:
Buy them ripe. Strawberries donít mature after picking, so look for glossy, sweet-smelling fruit, thatís
deep red all the way to the stems.
Eat them quickly. Strawberries stay perfect for days. Keep in the refrigerator, covered, and rinse just before using.
Choose organic. Conventionally grown berries show high levels of pesticide residue.
