The secret to making a bandanna you can eat with a fork—aka this fruit tart with a cutout crust—is using aspic cutters in varied shapes, such as circles and ovals. This just so happens to be our favorite dessert to serve for a patriotic holiday like Memorial Day or the Fourth of July.

Instructions Checklist

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out half the dough into an 11-inch square. Fit into a 9-inch square fluted tart pan with a removable bottom, pressing dough gently into sides. Prick bottom with a fork. Spread strawberry mixture over dough.

  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out remaining dough into an 11-inch square. Cut out shapes as desired (keeping at least a 2-inch border). If dough becomes too soft to work with, refrigerate until firm. Carefully place dough over filling, and trim any overhanging dough. Press edges to seal.

  • Whisk together egg and water, and brush egg wash over top crust. Sprinkle with sanding sugar.

  • Place tart on a baking sheet, and bake 25 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees. Bake until filling is bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes. If crust browns too quickly, cover with parchment paper and then foil. Let cool completely before unmolding. Cut into squares, and serve.

If this is your first time making a tart, I suggest looking up a "how to on pie dough" because this was my first time and my 11inch tart turned into a 6inch tart. It was very pretty when it was done. The great thing is once you have patee brisee down you can make anything.... Good Luck!

Goodness! This recipe says to discard the liquid formed from adding the sugar to the strawberries before making this tart. I would NEVER throw that out! Use it as an ice cream "sauce", on pancakes, or to add a strawberry flavor to lemonade. At our house, that stuff is like "liquid gold"! lol

Pate brisee is just a pastry dough. You might try adding a half teaspoon of vanilla extract if working with apple for instance.
