Strawberry cheese shortbread tart

After having much fun making my Scotland Thistle Flower Shortbread, I had been having even more fun making Scottish shortbread into other different ways for desserts. I made them into heart shapes for some friends when I invited them for lunch, gave a box of heart-shaped shortbread to another friend when she invited me for a meal and last week I made Strawberry Cheese Shortbread Tart when I invited some friends over for a Mexican lunch.

I was chatting with Ann from Anncoo Journal the other day when I asked her about photography…….how to take better and sharper food pictures. I know that the best pictures would be with natural light but that would be close to impossible for me living here in Aberdeen. There are not many bright days. To make matters worse, I always do my baking and cooking either early in the morning or later in the evening.

I know many food bloggers bring their food outside to take better pictures. If I were to do that, I need to re-heat my food cos it’s most of the time windy and cold here. Maybe I should put spot lights all over my kitchen! Maybe just put disco lights and dance around my kitchen while cooking and forget about nice pictures…haha.

But to my utter surprise, Ann asked me to send a few photos to her and she will help me to do some editing! Her warm friendship really melted my heart! I quickly sent her 2 pictures of my Strawberry Cheese Shortbread Tarts. She did that and sent back to me even though I asked her to take her time. It was way past her sleeping time when she got it done!

And knowing that I have a personal project to do that involves quite many photos, she asked me to send them to her, too, and she will help me with them!!! I think I almost fell off the chair…haha…with total joy! That’s such a great help to me that I really don’t deserve. Indeed, I never expect such kindness from someone I have not even met but have been very good friends through blogging. I’m really thankful and blessed!

Ann has awesome recipes on her blog…both cooked and baked food. There are lots of her recipes that I have bookmarked. The list is getting longer each week…haha. I think the best is to visit her and enjoy some of them….hehe. You got to visit her blog and see for yourself. I’m sure you will end up bookmarking lots of them like me…haha. And if you are a dog lover, all the more that you should visit because she even made a beautiful dessert for her dog, Cookie, to celebrate. That shows how much she loves her dog!

Those 3 photos above were all edited by Ann. I really like the one with the 2 tarts combined. I don’t know how to do that. It’s something new and brings a freshness to my blog. Ann said that she will help me with some html stuff. I’m not a computer techie and I think I just freak out on that…haha. Well, I know…….Keep Learning Keep Smiling!

I told Ann I’m going to share with the whole world that she helped me with my photos. She said, ‘No!’. She said it’s just something simple and most people know how to do that. Awww…she is really such a humble, sweet lady. No, I can’t take her ‘NO’. I have to boast to the world what an awesome friend I have. It may be something small and easy to many, but it means a big thing to me. It’s also the thought and action that means so much. Ann is an amazing friend….one that I must meet one day.

Back to my Scottish shortbread…..from all the earlier comments, almost everyone loves Scottish shortbread as they smell very buttery, fine in texture and not too sweet. Most people use short crust pastry to make tarts. But I was eager to try out with shortbread dough. It was an experiment that came out well…..happy me! Shortbread expands a little after baking so you may want to make the tart shell thinner unless you like thick tart shell.

Making this Strawberry Cheese Shortbread Tart is easy. The recipe is exactly the same as the one that I used for Scotland Thistle Flower Shortbread. The cheese cream is just cheese, double cream with some icing sugar beaten until thick. Do not over beat. Stop once it thickens. I didn’t use any measurement for that. Bake the tart shells as you would for the shortbread. Then fill it with the cheese cream, top them with strawberries and serve with some sauce poured over it……mmmmm…..delicious!

Cooking blackberry sauce

Cooking blackberry sauce

The blackberry sauce has no measurement too. I had a box of blackberries which were so sour no one wanted to eat. So, I pour them into a pot, add some sugar and a little water and cook til soft. Then blend in the pot with my hand stick blender, then pass the sauce through a sieve..and voila…fabulous blackberry sauce that’s great for anything….mmm. This is the first time I bought blackberries and it just shocked me, not only in its utter sourness but to see a lovely red sauce from blackberries that are black in colour and not red. Never try to explain how nature works…too stressful for me…..haha. Just enjoy it.

Here are pictures of other shortbread that I made:

Blueberries make a delicious, beautiful topping for Scottish shortbread, too. My family won’t eat blueberries but they don’t mind them in smoothies. Blueberries have a lot of health benefits. They are the only food that have been shown to not only prevent, but to actually reverse abnormal physical and mental decline. They are an excellent laxative, blood cleanser and antioxidant. They have also proven to be a powerful antidote to stress. So, do include some into your diet.

Heart-shaped Scottish shortbread

For those who are in love or just want to show loved ones some love, you can make 2 smaller hearts to serve….hehe. Of course you can add some lovely topping. Just go creative with them. Kids would love to do that. This shortbread dough is very easy to handle. Kids can use all sorts of cookie cutter to make different shapes. The ingredients are very simple, too. I gave 2 big ones to a friend for her to share with her hubby. I’m sure they have a great tea time together!

You find yourself refreshed by the presence of cheerful people. Why not make an honest effort to confer that pleasure on others? Half the battle is gained if you never allow yourself to say anything gloomy.

Very lovely look with strawberry!

Just a bit sharing from me who is living in very short sun when it’s winter. I use natural light from my window and using a mirror as a reflector. In winter, I usually take pics on the weekends only since I can do the whole day fro weekends.

TasteHongKong  on September 6th, 2010

Mary,
I believe you deserve this.
It is indeed a bad news that natural lighting is not always available. Perhaps you may consider using some software to help retouch your photos. Have a search on ‘Lightroom free download’, and get a free copy for trial first. Have fun and good luck : ).

kristy  on September 6th, 2010

Me too! I don’t even bother to change anything in my blog. In case, I mess up everything in there! haha… And also too busy to get them done. Ann did a pretty god job for you indeed! You must be so happy to finally see the clear & beautiful pic of yours. Enjoy your day.
Chers, kristy

penny aka jeroxie  on September 6th, 2010

How pretty! In winter I have problems with lighting as well. Many of my photos are edited because of it… bring on summer I say!

lequan@luvtoeat  on September 6th, 2010

Hi Mary,

I actually started following Ann’s blog after I found it on your blog. I have to totally agree, Ann does have some absolutely wonderful recipes, and she seems like such a sweetheart. Isn’t it amazing the types of friendships you can find through food blogging? I’m so happy with the friends I’ve been able to meet and make (such as yourself) through just blogging.

Those shortbreads look wonderful Mary! I loved the 2 in one picture that Ann did for you as well. I’m not a computer techie either and am definitely losing out, but like you always say, “keep learning, keep smiling.” My kids love blueberries. We go through one whole Costco container of blueberries in a week, sometimes a couple days! They would love your heart shortbread!

Von  on September 6th, 2010

Mmm….looks delicious!! I love Ann’s blog =) And wow! She sounds like a really really nice person- the impression that I get is that most bloggers are really nice too =] I do a lot of my cooking/baking in the evening too and hate the photos at night. It doesn’t really help that all the light in my house is really orange =( If it’s something that isn’t finished straight away, I usually leave it until morning to take photos. It must suck to live in a cold and windy place like you! (for photos anyway- I’m sure it’s actually a nice place) But your recipes are really interesting and look delicious anyway- I love your blog even if it doesn’t have perfect photos =D

Mary, the tart looks awesome! Ann is such a sweetie, she is really a very nice lady. I am not good in photography too and I have no time (actually more that I am lazy :P) for photo editing. My dinner shots always came out not good due to lack of lighting. I found a solution although I still have yet to make due to space constraints. I will email you, you can look into it if you have no issue on storage space.

sushma mallya  on September 6th, 2010

That looks so lovely, so yum..

My Restaurants Melbourne  on September 6th, 2010

the photos turned out wonderful. Ann did a great job. And Mary, this is so creative, all the different things you can do with shortbread to make them look so pretty too.

the lacquer spoon  on September 6th, 2010

Love the tart topped with the running berry juice… how sweet! You can choose a camera with “food” or “cooking” mode which gives a warm light effect when buying a new one, but your photos are always fine!!

Priya  on September 6th, 2010

Cute looking and irresistible tart..

Jeannie  on September 6th, 2010

Wow! You are spreading lots of love around with your heart shaped shortbread! Love the double pics combination too!

busygran  on September 6th, 2010

That’s what friends are for! Mary, you lucky gal! Ann, I wanna be your friend, I wanna be your friend! :)
Btw Mary, love the way you do your shortbread!

Treat and Trick  on September 6th, 2010

Hello Mary,

That is so lovely especially the ones with strawberry topping, Ann did the great job, I love her make over. I too have no knowledge at all about photography..

DG  on September 6th, 2010

Your strawberry cheese tart looks great!

Lyndsey  on September 6th, 2010

The tart looks picture perfect! Isn’t Ann the greatest? I love her photos and recipes and she has always been so generous! A great friend.

I have your same issues with my food photos. I make my bento box lunches so early before the sun is up and sometime our dinners are very late because my husband gets home from work late. I don’t touch up my photos they are straight out of the camera…some are better than others. I have a hard time with my little digital camera, I was used to my 35mm where I could control the shutter speed and aperture. Yikes!

Your recipes sounds wonderful!

Arnold  on September 6th, 2010

This looks really good. Your photos are just fine as well, the editing was well done. You have got a particularly nasty light problem. The only thing I could think of that could help you is a so-called light tent with a flash. This way you will be able to take photos any time you wish. These things are pretty inexpensive and if you Google for them you will find many different types. Just search for ‘light tent’.

pete  on September 6th, 2010

wow, all the nice juicy strawberries! mmmm, I would love a bite!

Faith  on September 6th, 2010

I love all forms of Scottish shortbread, and this looks so good! It’s a really beautiful dessert with the strawberries on top!

Aipi  on September 6th, 2010

Ooo..I bet that must have tasted awesome..very tempting!!

I have to agree with you on Ann - she’s just fabulous!

tigerfish  on September 6th, 2010

With natural light needs windows at home and I do not have lots of window in my house to take good photos too. No window in the kitchen too :(

Love the bright colors of the tart you made.

teresa  on September 6th, 2010

mmm, delicious and pretty, great job!

Joy  on September 6th, 2010

Its it lovely to friends that has the same interests. She did a great job editing.

Belinda @zomppa  on September 6th, 2010

She is super sweet! These photos are great - and I’m wishing I had some here. A disco ball would be awesome.

Mary  on September 7th, 2010

@Pepy @Indonesia Eats - Thanks very much for lovely comment and sharing the photography tips, Pepy! Using a mirror as a reflector is interesting. I’m trying to figure out how it works. Looks like I need to carry my food around the house & find the window with the brightest light :D I’m already hearing complaining and giggling….haha.

@TasteHongKong - Thanks very much for sharing, Maureen! That Lightroom software is new to me. Will surely look into it. Hope my pictures improve :D

@kristy - Awwwww…..Kristy, you are one sweetie! You make me feel great to know that I’m not all alone in poor computer knowledge….haha :D Me, too…not sure whether I can afford more time to do all the editing. If I know how to do it, maybe I’ll just edit the best one…the cooked dish :D Yes, of course…a real joy to see a transformation of my pictures by Ann! :D

@penny aka jeroxie - You did a wonderful job to your photos. They look sharp and nice. I hope to catch up soon :D Summer is on your side very soon while we will enter winter…brrrr

It’s always such a joy to read your posts and your comments…always brings smiles :D But of course no smiles when I read of your back problem! :D Really hope you are getting better each day. Wow….good for your kids that they like blueberries. I need them to train my girls….haha. Give a try making these shortbreads with your kids. It would be so fun to make with them and all the different shapes that come out. Take care, LeQuan!

@Von - Indeed you are very right….most bloggers are really nice and very helpful if you ask. I have not met any horrible bloggers. Really sweet of your comments. Thanks for loving my blog :D You must be a very patient person to leave your food to complete the next day to take photos. I don’t think I can sleep at night if my cooking is not done…haha. I love to see the end result. Need to learn patience from you :D

@Dr.Sameena Prathap - Oh wow….thanks, Dr!! Wish I can send you some but would be more fun if you come. I’ll make lots for you…all heart shapes!! :D

@Jess @ Bakericious - Indeed, Ann is a very sweet lady. I’m looking much forward to meeting her one day. I would really love to know your photography solution. I may have the same problem like you with space….small kitchen :( Thanks very much for sharing :D

@Priya - Thanks very much, Priya! :D

@Jeannie - Haha…love is in the air…love is in the air! :D Economy is bad, weather is not helping either, so I thought it’s a good way to share love around and cheer people up a bit :D

@Treat and Trick - Oh…we are in the same boat….not alone which is good news…haha :D Never mind, let’s take our own sweet time to learn. I’m sure we will catch up….one step at a time….one day at a time :D

@DG - Thanks very much, DG! :D

@Lyndsey - Absolutely agree…Ann is just amazing as a friend! :D Gosh….we are in the same boat in our cooking time! I think we better sing and dance more to cheer ourself up and be contented with the standard of our pictures as we admire others :P I always use my small digital camera cos it is so convenient around the kitchen. I have a DSRL but hardly in use. Time to take out and use.

@Arnold - Thanks very much, Arnold for the photography tip. I’ve just checked it out. It’s very interesting. I read that you can even make one yourself….that’s so cool!

I would totally go for disco dancing in the kitchen. That sounds awesome.

This tart is gorgeous! Love the fresh fruit!

Oooo…shortbread as tart crust! That must be heavenly. Sigh…I don;t bake - no cakes, no biscuits. If only my missus like you - can make shortbread! SIGHHHHH!!!!!

rebecca  on September 7th, 2010

they look great and I hear ya on Aberdeens weather I lived there for four years wow Ann is super sweet the snaps are great

Juliana  on September 7th, 2010

Wow, what a delicious looking tart…would take one in no time ;-)

Lauren  on September 7th, 2010

Hey Mary, I was just saying the same thing about lighting my photos the other day, it’s almost impossible now it’s dark at 8pm to get any decent photos of the food I cook. I think you are probably even slightly worse off in Aberdeen than I am in Edinburgh!

I like the disco light solution, maybe I’ll need to give it a try!

Stella  on September 7th, 2010

Oh Mary, your top photo is so pretty. This looks absolutely delicious and tea time worthy (smile). You know, I’m on a diet and can’t eat stuff like this lately, but I really do miss it.
Ann is so sweet too, and, in reference to photos, just know it’s hard for everyone;-). Do you know about the food photography ‘trinity’? It helps!

5 Star Foodie  on September 7th, 2010

Such a pretty tart with strawberries and I love the blueberry topping too, very yummy!

Chef Dennis  on September 7th, 2010

Mary

your shortbread does look perfect, the heart shape is classic, and it must have been delicious with those blueberries! I love those little tarts! Ann did such a nice job with the editing!

Mary  on September 8th, 2010

@anncoo - You are just such an amazing friend, Ann :D I’m looking much forward to meeting you one day :D

@Christine@Christine’s Recipes - I’m indeed very thankful to have many friends…and getting more through blogging :D All my friends, including you, make my life meaningful and happy :D

@teeth whitener - Thanks very much for visiting and sharing! :D

@Joanne - Thanks very much, Joanne! Bet disco dancing in the kitchen will improve our cooking…haha :D

@suituapui - Must be your missus loves you enough to keep you slim. That’s why she doesn’t bake….hehe. I cook and bake….that’s why my hubby can’t stay slim :P

@Angie’s Recipes - Thanks very much, Angie! :D

@Drick - Oh Drick, Drick…..looks like you need tonnes of patience for me to get there, learning the tricks of photography….haha :D Will let you know when I get there……still zero knowledge of it :( But….yeah…I’m catching up on you….using shortbread crust for tarts……very delicious….mmmm :D

@rebecca - Bet it must be so cold here that you moved away….haha. I hope to head to a warmer country one day. Yes, Ann is really super sweet….a wonderful friend indeed :D

@Juliana - Thanks very much, Juliana! :D

@Lauren - Oh dear…we are in the same boat! I’m not sure if Aberdeen is any worse than Edinburgh. Maybe it is as it’s near the sea and is most of the time windy and gloomy. Yes……let us forget about the light and our photography…just disco, have fun and enjoy our cooking…haha :D Bet our cooking will turn out great when we do that :D

@Stella - Thanks very much, Stella! Wow….on a diet! Hope you are well and can eat some one day. Yes, Ann is really very sweet….an amazing friend! I’m really glad to know you through blogging, too :D Thanks very much for your friendship, too. Yes, photography is hard but some are able to do it really well….really admire that. Hope I get there one day and will share on my blog :D

@5 Star Foodie - Thanks very much, Natasha! :D

@Chef Dennis - Thanks very much, Dennis! Yes, I’m really thankful to Ann for editing the photos for me :D
