Nuts about nuts tart

This weekend, sun was out, my mum and dad came from Japan to visit us... So, we all got together for BBQ:) As usual, Andy was in charge of the grill and I did the pastry.

Although our oven got broken half way through my bread making, I managed to prepare buns and rolls... phew...

For dessert, I made Nuts about nuts tart. As the name says..., Not only is the sweet pastry filled with rich almond cream, but also it has a nice thick layer of caramelised mix nuts. Yes.., this is indeed a nuts heaven! Ooh, yum yum yum :D

The topping was a little bit hard but nice and crunchy like a peanut brittle. It can be made as its own and served with tea or coffee.

Ingredients:

Sweet pastry 1 (see my Lemon meringue tart)

Filling
Crème fraiche 25g
Sugar 100g
Almond powder 100g
Egg 1
Vanilla extract 1tsp

Topping
Mix nuts (roasted) 200g
Sugar 150g
Corn syrup 90g
Butter 45g

1. Prepare the sweet pastry. Follow Lemon Meringe Tart recipe 1-5.
2.Preheat the oven to 180ºc. Make the filling. Combine all the ingredients for the filling and mix well.
3. Pour the filling mixture into the tart case. Bake for 40 minutes.
4. Once the tart is cooled, make the topping. Combine sugar, corn syrup and butter in a sauce pan. Place the pan on a low heat until all the ingredients are melted.
5. Add mix nuts into 4. Stir until it is lightly coloured.
6. Quickly put the topping on the cooled tart and spread evenly.
7. Cool in the fridge until the topping is set.
