Gluten-Free Italian Strawberry Tart

|

Hi there friends! Long time, no see. You may have noticed I took about a week off since little Britton was born. It wasn’t really planned rather, Britton has insisted on nursing 24/7. So getting on the computer has been next to impossible. I was lucky today and managed to sneak away to share with you a sweet dessert that is perfect for this time of year.

I’m all about strawberries. Why? For two reasons, the first being I absolutely love strawberries. (What’s not to love?!) The second, the grocery stores are packed! Did you notice tons of this delicious red fruit stocked for Valentine’s Day? I say, take advantage of the abundance and get to cookin’!

Fresh strawberries take center stage in my Italian Strawberry Tart. Just to warn you, this is the kind of dessert that your family and friends are going to be begging you to make again and again. Once they get that first bite, there’s no going back! 😉

When you bite into this tart the texture resembles a coffee cake. It’s light and fluffy with sweet juice pieces of strawberries mixed right in the middle. It’s perfezione! {That’s perfection in Italian.}

Speaking of strawberries, did you know they’re part of the rose family? Maybe that’s why they always smell as sweet as they taste! But besides their delicious taste, strawberries also contain high levels of nitrate. That means if you load up on strawberries before exercising you will have greater endurance and you will burn more calories! If you didn’t love strawberries before, I’m betting you do now! 😉
