  • 30-60 minutes to cook
  • How to make

For the pastry:

75g butter, chilled but not straight from fridge
150g plain flour
1 free-range egg
1 tbsp water (optional)

For the tart:

3 figs
2 tbsp honey
Zest of ¼ orange (optional)
1 tbsp milk

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6

Step 2

To make the pastry, place the butter, flour and egg in a food processor and blend together. If the dough looks dry and does not come together, with the blender still running, gradually add the 1 tbsp. of water to bring the pastry together into a dough

Step 3

Roll the dough out onto a floured surface into a round shape and about 6mm thick. Tidy up the edges by cutting into a round shape. Place the flat dough onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper

Step 4

Quarter the figs and arrange standing up onto the pastry, leaving 1.5cm around the edge. Drizzle the honey onto the figs and sprinkle the zest of orange over the fig

Step 5

Fold the edges in, pinching a little to make sure they stick. Brush the dough with milk to give you nice golden brown colour after baking

Step 6

Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the pastry edges are golden brown
