Baking : 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F /  175°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll out the shortcrust pastry to a thickness of 3 mm, trying to make a round shape.

  4. Top the center with frangipane, leaving a border of about 2 inches / 5 cm.
  5. Place the strawberry slices on the frangipane cream. 
  6. Fold the edges of the pastry to form a border around the strawberries.
