Strawberry Matcha Tart

This festive and delicious strawberry matcha tart with it’s pastel pink and green color scheme just screams SPRING! You’ll love the delicate flavors and play of textures in each bite.

Laminating doughs is a bit of work but the visual effect is truly spectacular! For this tart I used strawberry and matcha powders as well as a fresh strawberry reduction to create a bright, delicately flavored dessert to wow your guests
