Strawberry Tart with Orange Cream

A fruit tart is a wonderful dessert to make for any occasion. It always looks impressive, and is usually fairly simple to make. There is something about that arrangement of the fruit on top that makes it look like a bakery-bought dessert. I am fan of tarts with a sweet cream cheese layer, so this recipe really caught my eye.

I was looking for a colorful, springy dessert to bring for Palm Sunday dinner with our families. Katie pointed out this recipe to me and I printed it out right away! The light orange flavor paired with the apricot-glazed strawberries, all on a sweet tart dough is delicious.

If you don't have the time or the desire to make your own tart dough, a frozen pie crust will do the trick. Just defrost it and use exactly as the directions indicate. I don't have pie weights so I always use my little ramekins when baking the dough:

I didn't have to change anything from the original recipe so I will just link you to the original on the Williams-Sonoma website here:
