A hidden layer of white chocolate makes this scrumptious strawberry tart devilishly delicious
- 375g (13oz) ready-made sweet shortcrust pastry
- 50g (2oz) white chocolate
- 284ml (½ pint) double cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- One punnet of strawberries, washed and halved
Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F, gas mark 5). Roll out the pastry and line a 25cm (10in) greased loose-bottomed tart tin. Prick the base with a fork and cook the tart for 15 mins or until the pastry’s golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Melt the chocolate in a microwave and spread over the base of the tart case.
Whip the cream and vanilla together until firm and spread on top of the white chocolate.
Top the tart with the halved strawberries, arranged in rows.
