Strawberry Tart

My husband started a tradition a couple of years ago on Valentine's Day he will make me dinner.  This year was no different.  He is a great cook!  I just had to share the dessert with you all!

Strawberry Tart

1/2batch of Sugar cookie dough
1pkg cream cheese softened
1/3c sugar
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1pkg fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/4c white chocolate chips
1/4tsp vegetable oil

Cookie dough recipe:
3c flour
1/2tsp baking powder
1/2tsp salt
1c butter softened
1 1/2csugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract


Prepare cookie dough by first combining the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Then in another large bowl beat sugar and butter until fluffy, reduce speed and add eggs and vanilla until blended then add flour mixture until blended.  Divide dough into 4 quarters flatten each into a disk and wrap in plastic then refrigerate a few hours.

When ready to make tart use two of the disks from the fridge.  Preheat oven to 350degrees.  Grease a pizza pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray then press the dough into a circle.  Bake 18-20min until golden.  Cool completely.

While the cookie is cooling beat cream cheese until smooth then add sugar and vanilla.  Beat until fluffy.  Spread over cookie.

Arrange the strawberries on the tart.  Microwave the white chocolate chips and oil in a small bowl until it can be stirred smooth, be sure to use small amounts of time in the microwave.  Then drizzle over berries.  Store the tart in the fridge until its ready to be served.
