This torte is easy to make and so beautiful! Arrange the strawberries in a circle in the middle of the torte and gently press. Elegant and Decadent.... This wonderful recipe was found on a beautiful website:

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325° degrees F.
  2. Place nuts in a food processor and pulse until chopped fine; add flour and sugar; When well blended, add the cold butter, two tablespoons at a time; Remove from processor and spread in a spring form pan, pushing the mixture one inch up the sides of the pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 40 minutes until golden; Remove from oven and cool.
  4. Place cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat on high speed until fluffy and well blended.
  5. While the motor is still running, add small amounts of the whipping cream in a steady small stream into the cheese mixture, NOT TOO FAST, or the mixture will be too runny.
  6. When well blended, spread the cream mixture evenly into the baked, cooled crust (At this point, it can be covered and chilled up to 24 hours.).
  7. When ready to serve, place halved strawberries on top of the chilled cream mixture, remove the spring form pan rim, slice and serve.

My mom was coming to visit and I wanted my DW to make something special, so this is what she chose. It was loved by all three of us, and I can't wait to have it again! Thanks! Tony

What a beautiful presentation...and it tasted devine. I used walnuts in the crust....didn't toast them and didn't even notice the instruction to toast them until this review...oh well, next time I will. I also added blueberries with the strawberries and it looked and tasted wonderful. I think my favorite part is that this dessert is not too sweet because I am not a big sweet eater and make desserts mainly for my family to enjoy. This is one I enjoyed immensely! Thank you NcMystery, for posting!

Made this with raw almonds and in little individual tortes... I mean I couldn't stop eating the crust dough as I was pressing it into the pan or TRYING to keep "accidentally" getting the filling on my fingers! SO delicious and everyone just loved it! Thank you!
