Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart

With Mother’s Day coming right up on Sunday – we have taken the opportunity to whip up something classy and suitable for the occasion!

The recipe is as easy as pie, or in this case tart (lol), for the crust we blended flour, icing sugar, salt and cold butter, and bake nicely formed dough. We used our Weber Q to make all this happen, together with the roasting shield and rack.

After the crust is done, comes the filling, which is done in a food processor. If you like, add elderflower liqueur for the additional ‘oomph’, and other fruity notes. Bake it for another 45 minutes and you’re done – be prepare to serve dearest mum your expression of love!
