Valentine’s Day Strawberry Puff Pastry Tart

by KATHARINE ROSENTHAL, RDN

A perfect and simple dessert for Valentine’s Day with fresh strawberries, strawberry jam and an easy glaze!

Servings: 6

Prep time: 5 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 package puff pastry sheets
  • 6 T strawberry jam
  • 8 ounces fresh strawberries, sliced or cut into a heart shape

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions:

  1. Thaw the puff pastry for about 30 minutes. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread a sheet of parchment paper onto the baking sheet.
  3. Cut the puff pastry into six, four-inch rectangles using the folds as a guide. With a fork, poke the centers of the puff pastries. 
  4. Place the puff pastries on the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden brown and puffed up.
  5. Remove from the oven, take a fork and press down in the center of each pastry.
  6. Take about one tablespoon of jam and spread it over each puff pastry. Bake for an additional two minutes.
  7. Take the sliced strawberries and arrange them over the pastries – I like to cover the whole puff pastry!
  8. Make the glaze by mixing all three ingredients in a small bowl and drizzle over the puff pastries. You can always add less heavy cream, check the consistency and add more, if needed.

RECIPE TIPS: 

  • Use “no sugar added” jam to cut back on sugar or use ½ tablespoon of jam instead.
  • Cut the strawberries into hearts by buying a mini cookie cutter or using a paring knife to shape yourself.
