When it's fig season, (if you have a tree) you need every recipe you can come up with to use them all! We have had an absolute glut of figs this summer and as many as we eat, we give away twice that many. Although this dessert has honey, the figs are really the source of sweetness, though the almond paste does add sweetness as well.

If you don't usually like marzipan, don't worry, this is nothing like the purchased variety. You will be amazed at just how lovely it is. Almonds and figs are the perfect match.

Serve with or without cream.

Need

Do

1  

Pastry;

2  

Place almonds with sugar into Thermomix bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 8.

3  

Add butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt and mix 5 sec/speed 7.

4  

Add remaining pastry ingredients and mix 10 sec/dough setting/Interval.

5  

Turn out onto lightly floured Silicone mat and shape into a tight disc. Rest 30 minutes before rolling to line 20cm flan tin with removable base. Place in freezer while you prepare the filling.

6  

Vanilla Scented Marzipan;

7  

Place sugar and almond meal into Thermomix bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 8.

8  

Add vanilla, cornflour and egg white and mix 30-40 sec/speed 5, scraping down sides of bowl if necessary. Overdoing the blending at this stage can be risky, as the oil from the almonds can be released, thus rendering the marzipan useless.

9  

When marzipan has formed a reasonable dough, turn out onto corn floured silicone mat and roll out using rolling pin. Lay on top of lined flan tin and cut excess away. (Reserve excess.)

10  

The Tart;

11  

Place remaining ingredients into Thermomix bowl (including the leftover marzipan) and mix 8 sec/speed 7. Spread over the marzipan layer.

12  

Place figs carefully on top, arranged cut side up.

13  

Bake in preheated fan forced 180ºC oven for 30-35 minutes until just wobbly in centre. Leave in oven to cool. Chill before drizzling with extra honey before serving.
