Here is what you will need to create this pretty treat:

1 ½ cups raw pecans
2 tablespoons salted butter, cold and cut into pieces
1-2 tablespoons honey
1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
Half-pint heavy whipping cream

Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees.

Next in a food processor fitted with an S blade, pulse the pecans 20-30 times. You want them to be a course meal, but be careful not to blend too much as they will turn into pecan butter.

In a mixing bowl, mix together the pecans and honey (use 1-2 tablespoons depending on the desired sweetness.) Blend the butter into the pecan-honey mixture using your fingers.

Press the mixture into the bottom of a tart pan (14″x5″ rectangle or 9″ round will work) and bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven and turn down heat to 350 degrees.

Place the strawberry slices on top of the crust and bake for another 10 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

In the meantime, whip the cream in a chilled mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Serve slices of the tart with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
