Celebrating Mum’s Birthday with A Strawberry Almond Tart

This week we’re partying aplenty as we celebrate my beloved Mum’s birthday.

I’m so grateful to have a mother who is not only my Mum but my dear friend. I can’t imagine life without her hugs, compassion, and avid interest in anything her kids are up to. Happy Birthday, Mums!! I love you!

We tend to stretch out birthday celebrating in our family. We’ve had Kansas City bbq, great times with friends, movie nights, thrift store shopping, and who knows what we’ll get up to in the next couple of days. 🙂

When I asked Mums what sort of birthday cake she’d like, she asked for a fruit tart instead. I was delighted to oblige!

I nipped off to the market and found gorgeously plump strawberries that I thought would pair beautifully with almond cream and a sweet almond crust. Mmm, mmm! It turned out scrumptiously and Mums was a happy birthday girl.

What is your favorite birthday dessert?

I’m excited to have a new guest post up at The Travel Belles today! 🙂 Click here to read about Germany’s beautiful outdoor museum in Detmold. I’d love to hear what you think! 🙂

Strawberry Almond Tart

1 pint strawberries, washed and halved
1 package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup almond milk
1 Tbsp agave
1 tsp almond extract

For the Crust:

1 cup whole grain flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp almond extract

  3. Mix all crust ingredients, add a little flour if too soft. Press evenly into 9-inch tart pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown.
  4. Let crust cool, then spread cream mixture in the bottom and top with fruit. Drizzle with maple syrup. Chill until ready to serve.
