Fig Tart

Every afternoon, we have a little ritual. After I pick her up from school at 4.30, we would head over to the fig tree to have her gouter - an afternoon snack that all French children must have at around 4pm. So for us, instead of the usual biscuits or yoghurt, we picnic in front of our favorite tree & eat the fruits right off it. I told you The Girl loves figs.

As a result, we've also picked quite a lot of fruits. Even after I made another batch of jams, there were still left overs. So I decided to make a simple fig tart. I was too lazy to make pastry dough from scratch so I just used a store bought one that I had in the freezer. Cut the figs in halves or quarters, laid them out then poured fig jam over. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins & Voila !
