The Easter is almost here, so it’s a high time to practice baking some tarts! Pie crust with a delicious sweet additions! This recipe I’ve created because of my love to the date sweetness! This one is the best a day after being baked.
4,5 0z (125 g) soft butter
3 oz (80 g) powder sugar
9 oz (250 g) wheat flour
7 0z (200 g) dates
1 tbsp whiskey
dry fruit and nuts, i.e. dry apricots, walnuts, etc.
Mix butter with powder sugar, add an egg. Add flour and quickly knead, shape the dough into a ball. Place the dough wrapped in a plastic foil in a fridge, keep it in the fridge for about 3 min. In a greased tart pan place the rolled out to 3-5 mm dough. Poke a bunch of small holes into the crust with a fork. Bake until golden brown at 360 F/ 180 oC. Cool down.
In a saucepan on a low heat cook chopped dates with water, until dates get soft. Puree the dates with a blender until smooth, add whiskey. Spread the date mixture in a crust, decorate with apricots, walnuts, etc.
