Strawberry Cream Tart

Delicious low carb and gluten free strawberry cream tart perfect for any spring or summer brunch!

What do you look forward most to when you have a holiday brunch? It may be the quiche, the ability to eat both breakfast AND lunch on one plate, gathering around with family (obviously). Aside from all the wonderful things to brunch on, I think every good brunch needs to be rounded out with a fun dessert.

Easter brunch is right around the corner and I thought it would be delicious to offer your guests (or bring to the celebration) a sure-to-please strawberry cream tart. Golden flakey crust, fluffy puff clouds of whipped heaven, a juicy burst of strawberry? Don’t mind if I do!

Nothing makes people smile quite like a whipped strawberry tart and I KNOW you’ll love this one! Plus, it’s incredibly easy and holds really amazing if you want to make it ahead and keep in your fridge for a few hours until you’re ready to chow down. 

It’s a crowd pleaser and perfect for any spring or summer celebration. Let’s get this party started and make this tasty treat!!

Strawberry Cream Tart

Whisk together the room temperature butter, egg, almond flour, and sea salt. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes. Grease the tart tin with coconut oil (my tin was 14″ x 5″). Place the crust into the tin and press it around the edges until its an even layer and covers the whole tin. 
Brush with the whisked egg and bake the crust for 10 – 12 minutes, until golden brown.

Let the crust cool and come to room temperature. With an electric mixer, whip the heavy cream until it begins to get firm, about 1 – 2 minutes. Add the vanilla, sea salt, and agave nectar. Continue to whip until fluffy and whip cream consistency (another 30 seconds – 1 minute).

Once the crust is cooled, spread the whip cream evenly throughout.
