Tart au fraise pistache: Strawberry and pistachio tart

 Baking and baking, I think I bake too much, haha, because I started to bake even in my dream too.

The reason for my craziness can come from the fact that the moment that I stop baking , I read cookbooks or draw something that I want to bake instead (I live my life with color pencils in one hand and whisk in another, haha). Because I think about baking all the time, I dream about baking, ^^   may be I will come across some great recipes in my dream too, don't you think so? But today, the recipe doesn't come from my dream, it's come from the fact that I have some strawberries in the fridge and I had to do something about it.
This tart is very easy to make, both Pâte sucre and Crème d'amande à la pistache require less mixing time than making cake ^^, but look at the result, this tart is very very cute. Actually you can use raspberry for the topping too, pistachio gets along very well with the berry. The other confession that I need to tell you about this tart is it's delicious even without the berry, hehe, so if you want to testify that I told you the truth or not, you need to bake it today, ^^.
Serving it with hot tea or coffee, for delicious, and happy afternoon treat.

I'm obsessed with baking, too. But my problem is that, well, practising makes perfect and I am living with my boyfriend and I just cannot bake all the time or rebake the same recipe again and again because we simply just cant eat it all :)

The cake looks divine!

Beautiful tart! Is almond powder the same as almond meal? Do you grind pistachios finely to get pistachio powder?

Hi, Faa.rosli
Haha, you get it right, serving it with a cup of tea is the best.

Hi, hui
Thank you

Hi, Tini
Oh, I know it's not easy, I'm lucky to live with my family so I have a lot of people to enjoy my products ^^.

Hi, Lian
Yes, they are the same, and I grind the pistachios by myself, using the food processor.
