Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, butter, baking powder, sugar and salt with your finger tips until flour dissolves and all combine.
  2. add eggs and form a dough using ur hands, if it becomes too dry add small amount of milk.
  3. spread in the tart pan such that it covers the sides too, pierce with a fork.
  4. bake at 230 Celsius until its golden yellow from the top, if it does and still not golden yellow from bottom lower it in the oven.
  5. directly after it comes out sprinkle pinches of chocolate on top and spread so that it forms kind of a very thin layer and leave to cool down. (the chocolate is only used so that the crust wouldn't be softened when the jello is added on top).
  6. get the jello out of the fridge after it was hardened and blend it with strawberry juice, dont blend it too much we want it to be a little thick, check the flavor and add more strawberry juice and sugar if required.
  7. stir in strawberry slices and pour on the tart.
  8. add strawberry on top and garnish with whipping cream.
  9. put it in the fridge until jello and juice combination hardens.
