With spring just around the corner, it's hard not to get excited about sunny days, fresh flowers and plump, juicy produce! If you are in need of a recipe to wake you up from the winter blues, whip up this absolutely gorgeous (and delicious) strawberry tart! Made with lighter cream cheese and a little thinner than a cheesecake, this creamy tart only tastes indulgent. Pair with a bit of freshly whipped cream and it'll be spring in no time (at least in your head). 

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CRUST
  • 36 graham crackers
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 4 teaspoons water
  • Cooking spray
  • FOR THE FILLING
  • 2/3 cup light cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • FOR THE TOPPING
  • Almonds, chopped
  • Fresh strawberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. To prepare crust, place crackers in a food processor; process until crumbly. Add two tablespoons sugar, butter and water; pulse just until moist. Place mixture in a 9-inch round removable-bottom tart pan coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake for ten minutes or until browned. Cool completely before you put filling in it.
  4. To make the filling: Mix cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and extracts. Spread filling onto cooled crust. Cut stems off strawberries and decorate the top of the filling. Add almonds and enjoy!
