Here is what you will need to create this pretty treat:

1 ½ cups raw pecans
2 tablespoons salted butter, cold and cut into pieces
1-2 tablespoons honey
1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
Half-pint heavy whipping cream

Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees.

Next in a food processor fitted with an S blade, pulse the pecans 20-30 times. You want them to be a course meal, but be careful not to blend too much as they will turn into pecan butter.

In a mixing bowl, mix together the pecans and honey (use 1-2 tablespoons depending on the desired sweetness.) Blend the butter into the pecan-honey mixture using your fingers.

Press the mixture into the bottom of a tart pan (14″x5″ rectangle or 9″ round will work) and bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven and turn down heat to 350 degrees.

Place the strawberry slices on top of the crust and bake for another 10 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

In the meantime, whip the cream in a chilled mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Serve slices of the tart with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
