Delicious, beautiful presentation, and easy to make. Served to guests and 6 of us devoured the entire tart! I baked the crust on a silpat sheet on a cookie sheet. Whipped up a half pint of heavy cream for topping to which I added a dash of vanilla, a squeeze of lemon juice and about 1 TBSP sugar. Also added a few blueberries between strawberries for color.

This tasted delicious and was easy to make. I loved the lemon and almonds in the crust. The crust was a little too hard though. I really think it needed another egg. I would love to make this again and get the crust perfect, because it really was fabulous. I posted a picture of it, I hope you like it.
