To achieve a category result, it is preferable to look for high quality strawberries, at the right point of ripeness and small in size. We leave you the recipe right here:
For the sucrée dough we will add the flour and the salt in a bowl making a volcano, then we add the butter in pieces together with the icing sugar, we will rub with the tips of the fingers until it forms some crumbs, we add the egg, the rum and the interior of the vanilla bean, and add it to the butter and sugar dough. Next we are introducing the flour to the wet ingredients and forming some crumbs that we finally unite in a ball of dough. Let it rest wrapped in film in the fridge for about thirty minutes. We preheat the oven to 180 degrees and soak the gelatin sheets in cold water. We roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and place it in the removable cake mold cutting out the leftovers, we finish covering it with a piece of greaseproof paper and some weight-bearing vegetables, we bake it for fifteen minutes. Once the time has passed, we remove the legumes and continue to bake another fifteen minutes in white. We booked. Then we will wash and remove the tails from the strawberries and place them in a bowl. Boil the strawberry jam for five minutes with five tablespoons of water and the lemon juice, and pour it over the strawberries, letting it rest for ten minutes. We drain the gelatin sheets from the water and melt them in a glass in the microwave. We beat until the liquid cream is firm and we reserve. In a salad bowl we beat the mascarpone with the icing sugar until we see a homogeneous mixture, we add the gelatin gently melted and we add the whipped cream. Pour this mixture into the bottom of the cake base, decorate with the glazed strawberries and leave a minimum of two hours in the fridge for the filling to take shape. At the time of serving we decorate with mint leaves.
