Wouldn’t you love a slice or two of this delicious strawberry ricotta tart? I think it might be safe to say that I have a strawberry obsession, or at least very well on my way to one.
I’m not ashamed, I love strawberries, and I’m beginning to think that they love me too! Those sweet and juicy little bites of heaven, picked at the peak of flavor, just begging to be made into something delicious…….you see strawberries just want to be loved, and to make us happy, what more could you ask of that little berry?
This is not your typical ricotta cheesecake type tart, I would have to describe it as more of a custard than a cheesecake. The mix contains 4 egg yolks to a scant 1 ¼ cup of cheese. The crust is just a little sweet and oh so buttery, a perfect complement to the custard-like texture of the filling, one might say a match made in heaven, actually Italy, but for me, that’s close enough!
This sweet little tart is a favorite in our household and if you enjoyed as much as we did.

Your strawberries look incredible! The colors in that first photo are gorgeous.
It’s always nice to see fresh, in season ingredients used magnificently. I’d have a bite of this, and just may have to make it with my fruit obsession- mangos! You’re a recent find that I’m enjoying 😉

I’m a bit behind…I thought your obsession was with squash blossom?! 😀 Strawberries are good too, they are so versatile in many ways! What a piece of work this is, such a beauty too!
squash blossoms certainly are an obsession of mine, but since they won’t be out for another month or two, I thought I would compensate by obsessing on strawberries!

It is alright to have a strawberry obsession…I have a bit of one myself! How can you not when creating desserts like this?! Love this tart, it sounds amazing with the creamy layer underneath and sweet berries on top! Lovely as well :)!
