I had friends from France these days and I used the opportunity to try a recipe I found in a very inspiring btw book, Healthy Mediterranean.
I just put little ground nutmeg in the filling dough.
for the pastry:
175 gr flour
75 gr butter
1 or 2 tbsp cold water
for the filling:
90 gr butter
90 gr caster sugar
90 gr ground almonds
2 tbsp milk
13-14 fresh dates halved and stoned
for finish glaze with
4 tbsp apricot jam
Work the ingredients to make the pastry, line a 20 cm tin. Prick the base with a fork and leave aside to chill.
Mix all the ingredients for the filling. Spread over the base. On top arrange the halved dates as shown. Bake for 10 minutes in 200 degrees, then at 180 degrees for the remaining 15-20 minutes until golden.
When cooled brush the tart with apricot jam, heated for several minutes with several drops of orange water.
