Oreo crust strawberry tart

Oreo crust strawberry tart

This recipe was requested by my husband, El Cubano, for Father’s Day.   For sure, you are thinking that it is too late now, let me tell you it is not!  You don’t need an excuse to be using some fresh strawberries and that buttery Oreo crust.  It is all you need right now… and a fork to eat it!  This can be eaten today, tomorrow, birthday, anniversaries, you name it!

It is fresh, it has been chilled, it has an amazing chocolatey-buttery crust.  The not-too-sweet whipped cream is just the light topping that you’ll enjoy.

This is THE recipe that you need to have on your table to end a summer meal.  The strawberries are in season, go get ’em and taste those flavorful and juicy fruits.

This recipe is not totally from me, I don’t want to take all the credit, that would not be fair at all!  I found it in a Québécois magazine Coup de Pouce.  I took a good chunk of inspiration but made some twists.

They call for Graham crackers crumbs.  Shall I  justify my change for Oreo?  Don’t need to eh?  That is what I thought.  I added vanilla a little more here and there.
I prepared the strawberry filling a little differently too. But still, go ahead and have a look at this nice magazine, my monthly treat in the mail.

Unfortunately, no picture of an individual slice, I could have taken pictures of the crumbs in the plate… It speaks for itself, doesn’t it?
