Fig and Almond Tartlets

Ripe juicy figs are both pretty and tasty so I wanted to use them to show off to there fullest.
This is a quick and easy tart with little effect unless you make your puff pastry, I used purchased for this.

  • 1 sheet puff pastry cut into 4
  • 2 large figs (half for each tart if you have smaller figs you will need more)
  • 4 Heaped tablespoons ground almond
  • 2 Tablespoons caster sugar
  • Approx 4 heaped teaspoons honey
Preheat oven at 200C/400F/Gas Mark6

Score (to score make a shallow cut, don't go all the way through the pastry) a square about 2.5cm/ 1inch from the outside of the pastry, this will make the walls of the tart onto each piece of puff pastry and place on a baking tray

Mix the ground almonds and sugar and divide between the 4 square of puff pastry keeping the mixture inside your scored lines
Cut 1/2 fig into 4 wedges and place onto the almond mixture repeat for the other 3 tarts

Drizzle the honey over the figs (depending on the sweetness of the figs use more or less honey to taste)

Cook for 12-15 minutes (until the pastry is brown and puffed up)
Oven temperature 200C/400F/Gas Mark6

Tasty served warm or cold
