Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

For the topping:

  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 pound sliced fresh strawberries
  • 8 ounces marscapone cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a 10" x 2" tart pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • Whisk together flour, pecans, chocolate chips, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until mixture is fluffy, about five minutes. If using a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment to cream butter and brown sugar, then switch to the paddle attachment.
  • Add half of the flour and beat on low until flour is combined. Mix in remaining flour and continue to stir until incorporated.
  • Spread dough evenly on the bottom and up the sides if using a tart pan or pat into an 11-inch wide circle on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the edges begin to turn brown and the center starts to feel firm. Allow to cool completely before applying the toppings.
  • Whisk together preserves and orange juice. Bring to a boil in a small pot over medium high heat. Boil one minute until glaze begins to thicken. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Mix together marscapone, powdered sugar, and vanilla until fluffy, about 1 minute. Do not over mix or the spread will separate.
  • Spread marscapone mixture over the cooled cookie crust.
  • Add sliced strawberries to glaze and stir to combine. Spread glazed strawberries over marscapone.
  • Allow to refrigerate for 1 hour.
