I’m really digging all the fresh figs we have around us right now. And they’re so cheap! It’s all too easy to simply shove them into my mouth – hoovering them up in a flash, but that’s of no benefit to you, is it?
For a couple of years now, I’ve been meaning to make this Croatian fig tart that comes from the stunning Dalmatian coast. A creamy filling sweetened with golden honey and studded with fresh figs that look like jewelled, juicy cobblestones in one of the medieval villages the Dalmatian coast is known for.
I’ve put my own little spin on this classic tart. Cream cheese as well as regular thick cream, plus vanilla, poppy seeds and an egg yolk to make the filling a bit more like baked custard.
I reckon a touch of lemon zest wouldn’t go astray, either.
