2cups strawberries(300 g) ideally fresh so it will be local... or choose frozen.
Put the almond powder, the flour and the ¼ cup of sugar in a big bowl, mix well. Add the butter cut into cubes and mix everything with your fingers, until you are able to form a ball with it.
At this point, I cheat! The crust is so crumbly that I do not roll it but I place the dough directly in the plate and 'roll it' with my palm. It is actually as fast and I do not dirty as much.
Wash the strawberries and cut the leaves of it. Cut them in 4 and place them all in pot with ¼ cup of water and the ⅛ cup of sugar. Cook it on the stove at medium heat until the strawberries are soften. Stir regularly. It should not be fully cooked.
Spread your strawberries and decor with some leftover dough you might have.
Put in the oven at 400F for 25 minutes or when the crust looks golden.
