Note: + cooling & 30 mins resting time



  • 50g butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup (55g) brown sugar
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup (60g) almond meal
  • 1 1/2 tbs plain flour
  • 400g strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tbs finely shredded basil
  • 1/4 cup (55g) white sugar

Chocolate pastry

  • 1 1/4 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 1/3 cup (55g) icing sugar mixture
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 125g chilled butter, chopped
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg yolk
  • 1 tbs chilled water



To make the chocolate pastry, place flour, icing sugar, cocoa powder and butter in a food processor. Process until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add egg yolk and water and process until dough just comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until just smooth. Shape into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 mins to rest.


Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat butter and brown sugar in a bowl until light and creamy. Add the egg yolk and beat to combine. Stir in the almond meal and flour.


Divide the dough into 6 portions. Roll out each portion on a lightly floured surface to an 18cm disc. Spread each disc evenly with almond mixture, leaving a 2cm border. Top with strawberry. Fold the edges over, pleating as you go. Place on the lined tray. Bake for 10 mins. Reduce heat to 180°C. Bake for a further 15-20 mins or until pastry is dry to the touch. Set aside on trays to cool slightly.


Meanwhile, place the basil and white sugar in a small bowl. Use your fingertips to rub until well combined.


Arrange the tarts on a serving platter. Sprinkle with basil sugar.

Serve with basil leaves and strawberry ice cream
