THE RECIPE

Strawberry Tarte Tatin

Sweet strawberries bring a classic Fall dessert into Spring

You’re probably used to the traditional tarte tatin, filled with sugary caramelized apples or subtly sweet pears. Yet, there’s no reason to limit the dessert to fall or winter.Tarte tatins are typically meant to be deceivingly simple, showcasing the fruit, but here Morgan does much more. Using the strawberry, whose sweetness she undertones with red wine and ground pepper, she creates an ideal spring version of the classic fall dessert.  The finished product is still deliciously delectable for sweet tooths but the savory elements enhance the strawberry’s true flavor. After a half hour in the oven, the dough covered dessert becomes golden and flaky. Once turned over, the caramelized strawberries drip down along the buttery crust. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or enjoy the strawberry’s intricacies all on its own. Perfect for a springtime patio get together or a weekend spent at home.
