Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Prepare strawberry compote: place sliced strawberries, lemon juice, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until strawberries begin to break down. Transfer to a bowl to cool while you prepare the dough.
  • Prepare the dough: mix together flour and salt in a large bowl. Add cubed vegan butter and cut with a fork or pastry cutter to mix. Drizzle cold Coconut Plant-Based Beverage into dough and use your hands to shape mixture into a small ball of dough. If the mixture is too dry, add in another splash of Coconut Plant-Based Beverage. Add more flour to mixture if dough gets too wet.
  • Transfer dough to floured surface. Use a rolling pin to roll dough out to a large rectangle.
  • Cut dough into 12 equal squares. Transfer 6 squares to the baking tray. Place one tablespoon strawberry filling in the middle of each square. Top with the remaining 6 squares and use a fork to lightly seal edges together. Poke a few holes in the top of each pastry tart and brush melted vegan butter on top of each.
  • Bake pastry tarts for 23-27 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely before adding glaze.
  • Prepare strawberry glaze: whisk together, one tablespoon reserved cooked strawberries, coconut plant-based beverage, and powdered sugar to form a thick glaze. If the mixture is too watery, add in another tablespoon or two of powdered sugar. Drizzle on cooled pastry tart and top with sprinkles.
  • Enjoy!
