Chevron Pattern Fig Tart. Preppify your Dessert
1 Fine Cookie joined forces with KitchenAid yet again to whip up stunning fig tarts. I baked up buttery crusts, filled with marscapone cream and topped with bright, pink figs.
Not to leave an edible in its basic form, I constructed a chevron print within the tarts. Just doing my thang.
This is such a great alternative to the rich, heavy desserts out there. Although the crust is buttery and rich, it is filled with light and airy marscapone cream. The figs add a punch of sweetness that won’t give you a toothache.
Here are some tips for the perfect fig tart:
I used a cold butter mixture for the tart dough. When making tart crust, it is important that your butter be very cold, and work with dough quickly to prevent it from softening too much.
Drape dough over tart pan, then a neat trick is to use a rolling pin and roll it across the top of the pan. It will remove the excess dough, keeping the top of the crust even and neat.
Make sure to butter the pan prior to filling with crust to ensure ease of removal. Cut a piece of parchment paper and place in the bottom. Tart pans have a removable bottom, so once it is baked you pop it up from below to remove.
Whip up the marscapone cream very well. Use a small spatula to fill tarts.
In order to create the “chevron” look, use a knife or small spatula to create zig-zag incisions into refrigerated filling.
It will help fit the fig pieces in properly.
Cut the slices into quarters, or more depending on the chevron pattern size.
Pretty preppy pattern.
If you are in a pinch, you can simply cut the figs into quarters and place on top. Still stunning and delicious.
