Tart with walnuts and figs

August 31, 2019 by No Comments

The area where I live is called Smokvarija. Nowhere have I seen so many fig trees as here. Each yard has several. Next to a fig tree in my yard is a walnut tree. I ate figs directly from the tree and thought about how I could make a tart. Mascarpone, Greek yogurt, honey, figs … I’ll sprinkle on top with coarsely chopped walnuts. Walnuts …. um, you could use them in batter. I had last year’s walnuts still in the shell, so the making started by cleaning the walnuts (hard work, but it paid off).


  • 270 g of walnuts

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 60 g of cold butter

Grind the walnuts and sugar into a multipractice (you can grind them fine as a powder or leave a little texture). Add the butter and pulse briefly to combine the ingredients. Pour the mixture onto cling film, shape into a disc and place in the fridge for half an hour. When the mixture has cooled a bit, spread it into the mold with your fingers. Spread it on the bottom and form pages. Place the mold in the refrigerator for half an hour, then bake for 15-20 minutes in an oven preheated to 180 ° C. Allow to cool on a wire rack, then remove from the mold.


In a bowl, mix the mascarpone, Greek yogurt and honey. When the mixture is even, pour it over the baked and cooled dough. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Before serving, spread quarters of figs on the surface, sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle with honey.
