Jump to recipe!

Time is growing close…do you know what you are baking for Father’s Day? No? Well I have you covered…these Fresh Strawberry Tarts are easy and sure to be a hit with Dad, Grandpa and your hubby!

Growing up my Dad had the most amazing Strawberry patch. I vividly remember him on his hands and knees picking quarts and quarts of berries for my Mom to bake up a Pie, make some Freezer Jam or simply eat fresh from the patch.

I miss those days when life seemed to be much easier, a relaxing afternoon under the Maple Tree or a walk to the beach. These Fresh Strawberry Tarts definitely takes me back to those easy days of Summer.

Complete with Cowboy Burgers with Homemade Onion Rings, Bush’s Black Bean Fiesta Grillin’ Beans, Pasta Salad, Fresh Strawberry Tarts and a fun Centerpiece that the kiddos can help make for Dad…this Father’s Day Celebration goes together in a snap!

    mmmm…these look heavenly!


  2. Get another plate out for lunch tomorrow!! I think if I can avoid all the black/whites I could make it before lunch is over LOL I was going to make freezer jam this year, it’s the only kind I really, really like, but at $24 a flat, I don’t think I will. Not a typo! $24/flat!!! You will only get any of my strawberries if you are a VERY special person !!!

    I have now frozen all of my strawberries. Can I thaw some out and use them in the strawberry tart recipe or will they be too mushy? Thanks so much.


    1. They should be okay, I would serve them immediately though, they may make the crust soggy.
