Because I spend more time than most baking sweet things I don't often buy cakes and stuff like that. However one afternoon I was passing by Carluccio's in Islington when I saw a mini strawberry tart that I just couldn't pass by.
A delicious shortcrust pastry with a mascarpone cheese filling, it was literally the most delicious thing ever. It was so good that I actually felt guilty as I sat at my desk eating & enjoying, like I should really be having this much fun in private :).
I had to recreate this again & I used a mascarpone cream icing to fill the flan then topped it with fresh British strawberries and a jam glaze.... Delicious.
Like the title of this post says, it's difficult to think of anything other than happy thoughts when eating a strawberry tart. Click here for a recipe if you'd like to make your own :)
