This palate-pleasing tart showcases the sweetness of fresh strawberries, though you can make it with nearly any soft, ripe fruit that's in season (or available in the frozen-food aisle). And though pie dough sounds like a lot of work, it's actually simpler than you'd think; this rustic version uses only a handful of ingredients and comes together easily. If you're short on time, you can use store-bought refrigerated dough instead. No one will skip this dessert!

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

1 cup(s)

table salt

tsp

reduced-calorie margarine

2 Tbsp, very cold, cut into small pieces

vegetable oil

2 Tbsp

mineral water

2 Tbsp

strawberries

2 cup(s), fresh or frozen, hulled and quartered

sugar

2 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour and salt; cut in margarine with a pastry cutter or two table knives until pieces are the size of peas. Add oil and toss mixture with a fork until it is crumbly; sprinkle in water (at least 1 tablespoon and up to 2 tablespoons) and stir until dough begins to hold together. Knead very briefly, form dough into a ball and flatten it into a disk.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.
  3. Set dough between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and roll out to an 11-inch circle. Peel off one piece of plastic and invert crust onto sheet pan.
  4. Spoon strawberries onto dough, leaving a 2 1/2 inch border around edges; sprinkle berries with 1 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. Fold border of dough up over berries (so berries near edge are partially covered), leaving the center 5 inches exposed; sprinkle edge of dough with remaining sugar.
  5. Bake until center is very juicy and dough is lightly golden, about 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool at least 20 minutes before cutting into 6 wedges. Can be serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
