This Easy Strawberry Cheesecake Tart recipe is a quick and simple summer dessert that looks super fancy and tastes delicious without much time and effort! This recipe balances homemade goodness (a creamy cheesecake layer, fresh strawberries, and homemade glaze) with convenient shortcuts (a sugar cookie crust!). If you're into going homemade all the way, though, don't be afraid to make a homemade pâte sucrée like in this recipe.

Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled and divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a round tart pan. Slice the cookie dough into even slices and lay them out in the pan. Press the dough into the pan and up the sides. Dock the middle of the dough well with a fork. Bake the shell for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  2. Make the cheesecake layer. Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and whip to combine. Spread this evenly into the cooled sugar cookie crust.
  3. Arrange the strawberries: Slice about 2 cups of fresh strawberries and layer them in overlapping concentric circles on the top of your pie. Chill this while you make your glaze.
  4. Make the glaze: Crush remaining 1/2 cup of strawberries and cook with water in a saucepan over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and discard the pulp. Add the juice back to the saucepan over medium-high heat and gradually stir in sugar and cornstarch. Cook until thickened. If you want, you can tint this glaze with food coloring to desired hue, but mine was plenty bright enough! Cool the glaze slightly. Transfer the glaze (through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any clumps of cornstarch) into a heat-proof measuring cup with a pour spout and let it cool for a few minutes. Pour over top of strawberry slices on your pie and chill for at least 2 hours. Serve.
