UPDATE: I ASKED MY MOM WHAT DESSERT SHE WANTED ME TO SERVE FOR HER BDY. SHE CHOSE THIS (SHE SAW IT IN THE FRIDGE ON SAT.)!!! SOOOO good! My "to be" MIL requested I bring a dessert for Easter dinner. B/c I was hosting myself (Sat. eve.), and had a LOT of stuff to to do for that, I wanted a dessert that required min. prep, but exceeded my expectations flavor-wise. This was just the ticket! I must admit.... I wasn't expecting much. After tasting the crust (a bit broke off!) & glaze, I wasn't impressed. HOWEVER, the irony of this recipe is the simplicity of ea. part - once asssembled, everything complements ea. other nicely. One other plus+.... The ing. for this are inexpensive, you probably have most on hand anyways & assembly is a snap! I made a few ch., not b/c they were necessary, but b/c I wanted to. :-) Instead of using a pie plate, I dbl. the crust & used my new tart pan. I had to bake a little longer b/c of that, prob. 20 min. total (a guess since I didn't time it). My only other ch. was to toss my strawberries w/ the glaze & then dump into my tart shell. I think next time I'll add some Jell-O as others have done. Handy tip: To easily hull your strawberries, use a STURDY straw. Simply push the straw up from the bottom thru the stem, and viola - instant hulled berries! My fiance's bros (who don't like sweets) HAD to have a slice when they saw how good this looked. Both licked their plates clean!!! Try this with a dollop of whipped cream. It's divine! Thx. for sharing. :-)
