2x Pie Dough (ingredients for 1x)

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 rounded tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 rounded teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 ounce unsalted butter - cold
  • 3 tablespoon cold water
  • Extra flour for rolling

Strawberry Filling

  • 1 lb strawberry
  • 1/4 cup sugar - divided
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch


Make the dough

  • Add flour, sugar and salt in a small bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk. Then transfer to a food processor fitted with the dough blade.
  • Cube the cold butter and add to the flour mixture. Pulse several times until butter is about pea and bean size, variation in size is okay, but no smaller than a pea.
  • Turn the food processor to “on” position and drizzle cold water over the dough mixture through the water hole, as soon as the dough starts to pull together turn the food processor off. You may need to stop the food processor in between and get a spatula to get the flour at the bottom to mix up.
  • Turn the dough out on the counter or cutting board and shape into a disk. Wrap in plastic and rest in the refrigerator for an hour.
  • Repeat the steps above for the second pie dough recipe to be used for the decoration.

Make the strawberry filling

  • Wash and hull the strawberries; cut into slices about 1/4” thick.
  • In a medium bowl, toss strawberry with half the sugar, orange zest and juice; let rest for at least one hour to extract some of the strawberry juice out.

Prepare the crust and decorations

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Take one disk of dough out of the refrigerator and roll into a rectangular shape at least 2” wider than your tart pan on each side.
  • Place the dough over a 4”x13” rectangular tart pan, lightly press the dough into the bottom and sides of the pan, let the excess dough hang over the side.
  • Press the rolling pin along the edges of the tart pan to take off excess dough.
  • Poke the dough with a fork a few times, line with parchment paper and fill with dry bean.
  • Par-bake the crust for 15 mins with bean, remove parchment paper and bean, bake for 5 mins longer.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • Mean while take the other piece of pie dough out of the refrigerator, cut into half, refrigerate or freeze the other half for another recipe or use. This will be enough for 10 roses and several leaves.
  • Roll the half piece of pie dough into 1/8” thick, cut into circles with a 2” cookie cutter.
  • Place 4 circles in a line, each one half way on top of the other. Roll them up into a tube, cut the tube in half, crosswise. Pinch the bottom of the dough on the cut end. On the open end, flare out the petals to shape the rose. Each 4 circles will make 2 roses.
  • Repeat the step above to make as many roses as you need.
  • Use a leaf shape pie crust stamp to cut out the leaf decorations.
  • Refrigerate all decorations until ready to use.

Assemble and bake

  • Drain the strawberry juice and reduce to 2 tablespoon in a small sauce pan over medium heat, set aside.
  • Add the rest of the sugar and cornstarch to the strawberry and mix well.
  • Add strawberry slices into the cool par-baked crust; pour the juice over the filling.
  • Add rose and leaf decorations in two corners and in the middle of the tart.
  • Brush the roses and leaves with the reduced strawberry juice set aside earlier.
  • Bake for 22 minutes uncovered.


This recipe requires at least one full pie dough recipe for the crust and one half pie dough recipe for the decorations. The ingredient list above include ingredients to make one recipe of pie dough. Double the ingredients for two recipes of pie dough. However, it is best to make them separately as the food processor will get too full.
