A sultry rouge treat for your loved one, or pig out and eat the whole thing yourself.
Let's be honest, Valentine's Day is the worst holiday ever invented. But I'm a sucker for pretty things and couldn't resist when I saw a similar recipe on Pinterest.
Preheat Oven: 180 degrees
To make the dough combine the flour and butter in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Slowly add the cold water to bring the mixture together, forming a ball of dough. Split the dough into two and save one half for later. Roll out the dough on a floured surface, bigger than your desired tart dish. Cover your dish generously with butter, then place the rolled out dough over it. Trim the edges. Ensure all the edges are smooth and there are no air bubbles in the dough. Use baking beans to blind bake the dough for 10 minutes.
While the dough is blind baking, combine the fruit with the sugar in a bowl and lightly smush (technical word) together. Take the second half of the dough and roll it out. Then using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, make about 24 hearts. Once the dough has finished blind baking, leave to cool then add the fruit. Place the hearts in a pretty circular pattern and bake for a further 15 minutes until golden brown.
Serve with clotted cream and more strawberries.
