Honeyed fig and curd cheese tart
- Preparation and cooking time
- Total time
- Serves 6
- 230g circular or rectangular sheet (we used La Pâte Feuilletée ready-rolled puff pastry, available from Ocado)
- 150g curd cheese
- 75g ground almonds
- 1 egg yolk
- 3 tbsp golden caster sugar
- 4-5 small purple figs
- 1 tbsp flaked almonds, toasted
- 1 tbsp runny honey
- STEP 1
Unroll the pastry onto a baking sheet. Score a border 2cm in from the edge and prick the inside with a fork. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.
- STEP 2
Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Beat the cheese, ground almonds, egg yolk and sugar together in a bowl. Cut the figs into thick slices. Bake the tart case (unfilled) for 10 minutes.
- STEP 3
Take out of the oven and gently push down the centre which will have puffed up. Let it cool a little then spread the cheese mix inside the border and lay the figs on top, choosing similar sized slices for a neater finish.
- STEP 4
Bake for another 20-30 minutes until the filling is light golden and puffed a little. Scatter over the flaked almonds and finish with a drizzle of honey. Serve just warm.
