Fig & Almond Tart Recipe

Fig & Almond Tart Recipe -

Figs are one of my favourite fruits and today’s recipe contributor Carina, is lucky enough to have not one, but two fig trees in her garden. I’m so jealous!

Carina tells us about her delicious Fig & Almond Tart Recipe:

“If I am not working, playing with my little man or crafting, you will find me in the kitchen, I love to bake.
This recipe has become my go-to ‘need-to-take-morning/afternoon-tea-dish’ or dessert. Making this in a fluted tart tin produces a fancy-cafe-style tart or if made individually produces elegant stylish desserts (especially when served with cream or ice-cream). I have received countless compliments and numerous requests for the recipe. Go on, try it. Once you see for yourself how EASY and how GOOD it tastes, it may even become your go-to recipe.

If you don’t have fresh figs available try peach wedges, nectarines, or even frozen berries.”
