Observations:

Don't burn the cream : use a whisk instead of a spoon to avoid any clots that could burn.

The jam : It will make the strawberry shine, and give a professional effect to the tart. Moreover, it will prevent them to have direct contact with the air, and oxidize.

Cooked strawberry version :Take the cream out of the recipe, arrange the strawberries directly on the crust. Sprinkle a little bit of sugar on it, and bake 20 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
