Strawberries and Cream Tart

Adding to my summer baking repertoire, I made my first fruit tart courtesy of Martha Stewart's Pies and Tarts cookbook.  Both recipes, the pate sucree (sweet pastry tart) and the vanilla pastry cream, were followed to a T.  I glazed the strawberries with raspberry preserves which I warmed up in the microwave and then strained through a mesh colander.

I love that everything could be made ahead of time and assembled right before I was taking off to my friend's backyard BBQ.
