Deconstructed Dessert – [Strawberry Pecan Tart]

During these times of staying home during the quarantine, every seems to be baking up a storm!  These past three weeks, I haven’t been able to find any bags of flour in the grocery store to purchase.  Knowing that my flour supply is running low, I wanted to bake a quick dessert that didn’t require any flour and that I could eat with a cold scoop of ice cream.  For the crust, I baked a quick pecan base that only required 4 ingredients (crushed pecans, melted butter, honey, and a pinch of salt).  The base was a bit crumbly, but I didn’t care knowing I was going to scoop it into a bowl and eat it with some ice cream.  I also didn’t want to waste an egg (although that would likely help bind it better together if that’s something you want).  Super easy and super quick!  It’s a perfect dessert for two people too. I cut it up into four pieces and got 4 servings out of it.
