Honey Lemon & Strawberry Tart

So a  tart? What is that exactly? A cross between a pie and a cheesecake maybe? That’s what I’m thinking but just to be sure I’ll just ask my good friend Webster. One moment please.

Alright I’m back. Annnnd here it is: tart (n) – a small pie filled with cooked fruit or other sweetened preparation, usually having no top crust.  Add something about honey, lemons, and a strawberry drizzle and that pretty much sums up this dessert.

Honey Lemon & Strawberry Tart
 I was a little apprehensive about this here tart thingy because, well, I’m not a big fan of cheesecake. Or pie. So you can see why a hybrid of the two would deter me a bit. But you guys, this tart? Heaven to betsy it’s good stuff. Like – here’s a bite for the ten of you to share, and the rest is for me – good stuff. You catch my drift?

Honey Lemon & Strawberry Tart

There’s a little bit of tartness (pun totally intended) from the lemon, a creamy quality from the honey, and a burst of berry flavor from the strawberry drizzle. And if that doesn’t sound like heaven just look at it. Isn’t she purdy?? Almost too pretty to eat.

Almost. Of course I ate it. All of it.

Found your site through Pinterest and am I ever glad I did! Was reading over your recipe for Orange Muffins with Coconut Streusel and am wondering if there is a missing ingredient? Under the ingredient list for the muffins, right below “1 tbsp. vanilla” the next ingredient reads “1 tbsp…”
Is that a typo or should there be an ingredient listed there? I cannot wait to try these…they look delish!
Thanks!
Cassie

    Hi Cassie, for the muffins – the recipe shouldn’t have that extra tablespoons, it’s a typo! Sorry about the confusion! 🙂 I hope you enjoy them!!!

Looks and sounds delicious, but where does the lemon come in?

    Oh for heaven’s sake – ha! I just updated the recipe, not sure how on earth I missed that rather crucial ingredient 😉 Thanks for the catch Michelle!

That looks amazing! I love the strawberry/honey/lemonade combo. Pinned!

    Thanks Chloe! I LOVE strawberry lemonade. Love love love it. So this tart makes me one happy gal. And the honey just adds a hint of creamy sweetness that balances everything out. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my blog, I can’t tell you how much your sweet comments make my day!! 🙂

This sounds absolutely delicious. I especially love the use of honey in here!!

    Thanks Rachel! This was my first attempt at a tart – I loved it! So much easier than a pie or cheesecake I thought. And um, wow the yumminess of it. The honey is my favorite part! 🙂
