• 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (plus more for handling dough)
• (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 bar (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1 1/2 to 2 pounds strawberries, hulled and halved
• 1/4 cup red currant or strawberry jam
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, blend flour, butter, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt until moist crumbs.Transfer dough to a 9-inch round tart pan with a removable bottom.
With floured fingers, press dough evenly into pan and up sides. Freeze crust until firm, 10 to 15 minutes.
Using a fork, prick crust all over. Bake until golden, 25 to 30 minutes, pressing down gently once or twice with a spoon during baking if crust puffs up. Cool completely in pan.Make the filling: In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup sugar until smooth; spread mixture evenly in bottom of baked crust (still in tart pan).Starting from outside edge, arrange strawberry halves, stemmed side down, in tight circles on cream cheese.In a small saucepan, heat jelly on medium-low until liquefied. Gently brush strawberries with jelly; let set at least 20 minutes. Chill in pan at least 1 hour (and up to 6 hours); remove from pan just before serving.
