when it comes to my just about all time favourite dessert - fresh fig and walnut tart!

It's a pretty straightforward recipe that will earn you a ridiculous amount of praise.

My recipe doesn't specify to blind bake the pastry but I think it works better to blind bake first.

Blind bake a rich shortcrust pastry base in a loose bottomed flan tin. Allow it to cool and spread with frangipane filling (you can find a recipe at

Cover with fresh fig halves, plump, whole walnuts and sprinkle with icing sugar. I'm not a fan of added sugar but on this tart, it caramelises beautifully on the figs.

Bake in a moderately hot oven for 20-30 mins until the frangipane filling is set.

Serve warm with whatever makes you happy.

I'm trying to lose a little weight right now but when it comes to fresh figs and this heavenly tart, I say 'bugger the diet, figs come around only for a short time each year!'
