I omitted almond everything and based on the comments I used a lot less sugar and it tastes great! I used 1/4 tsp sugar for the crust, 1/8 cup of sugar (and added a little more vanilla) for the filling and a little less than 1/3 cup sugar for the glaze. The strawberry glaze didn't come out clear like the picture but it still tastes amazing!
3 ½ hours to make/let cool, and 25 seconds for the whole thing to be inhaled. Next time I will make two. Would recommend doubling the recipe and making two at once.
Made this for Easter last year. It was fantastic!!
I made this for Easter and it was a hit! Not only did it taste delicious, it looked so professional! Many of my guests asked where I bought it! Definitely would make again!
I make this dessert every year for Easter. It is fantastic!! It's pretty and everyone loves it. I make it exactly as written. Updated review I made this with soy cream cheese due to a dairy allergy and it is still outstanding. It really tasted the same as the one made with real cream cheese. So now I make one of each kind for Easter.
Amazing !! BUNCO group LOVED IT ! Kids LOVED IT ! I LOVED IT !!
This was a hit with the entire family. I used soy cream cheese because of dairy intolerance and double the amount of almonds. It was a great light tart and we will definitely make it again.
I only got a small taste. It was gone in less than 5 minutes. I had 3 quarts of the top of the season berries and selected the best medium size ones for the top. Made changes as suggested in other reviews (cinnamon crackers, no sugar; 8 oz cream cheese and 3 tsp amaretto; 1/2 glaze recipe. serve with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream for tour 27th 4th of July party.
I made this for my Cooking Light Group and it was a huge hit and have it twice since by the ladies that attended. Absolutely worthy of entertaining! No changes necessary.
This is a fun dessert. I think I would actually cut back on the sugar in the glaze--I found the tart a bit too sweet. I don't have a tart pan so I just made it in a glass pie dish and it turned out great. Looks very impressive, too!
I was a wonderful dessert. I made these changes: 1) I substituted cinnamon graham crackers for regular and omitted the sugar in the crust. 2) I used 2 t amaretto instead of the almond extract.
This was really good except the vanilla and almond extracts were overwhelming and fake tasting, and I would leave those out next time. The crust was great, the strawberry glaze was great, I halved the amounts for the glaze (so there would be no leftovers) with no problems. My crust took 8 minutes. I made the tart in a pie pan and the slices came out clean and easy.
Very good, and active time including cleanup was under an hour. I think you could cut back on the sugar a bit. Also, I noticed the recipe calls you to make twice as much strawberry glaze as necessary, which was strange.
This was really refreshing and yummy. I would recommend more of the cream cheese layer though, and add whipped cream to the top. VERY tasty!
This is an awesome recipe and well worth the multiple steps. My guests were totally impressed with the presentation as well as the taste. I substituted 2 teaspoons of Amaretta for the almond extract.
