This no-bake figs and honey tart is an elegant and delicious way to enjoy the most delicate fruit. Not only figs are delicious and nutritious, they are beautiful too ! I have prepared this recipe for one of the interesting challenge that is organized every month by fellow bloggers; The A-Z Recipe challenge where we choose the ingredient with the alphabet of the month. So here this time its F and without any doubt my star ingredient has to be FIGS !! Ohh, I just love them, when they’re in season I could happily eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and snack on them in between.
They make even the simplest of dishes feel Wow ! and find a place in both sweet and savoury.
So lets talk about this simple, no fuss fresh figs and honey tart !
To make this figs and honey tart, we start by preparing the crust. Soft, and unabashedly buttery, the oats and bics crust here is anything but subtle. It is the perfect match for the creamy, lightly sweetened cream and fresh figs. A simple stir of oats, digestive bics, handful of nuts (almonds and walnuts), butter, salt, soaked figs and honey and you’re halfway there to creating the best no-bake healthy crust for your tarts. Easy peasy.Right? I used a non-stick removable tart pan and press the mixture down and up the sides slightly to completely cover the tart pan. Refrigerate for sometime to firm up.
The filling for this no bake figs tart is easy one, I have used whip cream, cream cheese, vanilla and a bit of sugar.
Arranging the sliced figs on the top of the cream layer and decorating it with some pistachios makes this dessert just amazing! Refrigerate it for 30-45 minutes and get ready for one incredible and might I say, eye catching, delicious dessert.
The fresh, sweet figs were put to good use in this, and as a no bake recipe, it was a hit in my family and friends.
So whats next, put on your aprons and lets begin!
Preparation Time – 30 Minutes plus refrigeration time
Serve – 9 inch Tart
1 1/2 Cup – Rolled oats
20 Nos. – Digestive Biscuits
A Handful – Chopped Nuts (almonds, walnuts)
2 Tablespoon – flaxseed powder
10 Nos. – Dried Figs, soaked in water
3/4 Teaspoon – Salt
100 Grams – Butter,melted
4 Tablespoon- Honey
230 gram – Cream Cheese
1 Cup – Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Tablespoon – Sugar Powder
3 Tablespoon – Honey
1/2 Teaspoon – Vanilla essence
Handful of chopped pistachios
Honey to drizzle (optional)
How to go about it –
- Soak the figs with enough hot water to just cover and set aside for 5 minutes.
- In a food processor, combine all the crust ingredients and drained figs, pulse for 2 minutes or until the dough comes together.
- Press the dough into the bottom of a non-stick 9″ tart pan, pressing down and up the sides slightly to completely cover the tart pan. Refrigerate for 10 -15 minutes to firm up.
- In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until creamed and no lumps remain, about 1 minute. Be sure the cheese has come to room temperature or you will have a clumpy filling. Add the sugar and beat to combine, about 30 seconds. Add in the honey slowly with the mixer on low. Scrape the sides of the bowl and beat for an additional 30 seconds to ensure everything is well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 cup of the heavy cream on medium low speed until it gets frothy. Increase the speed and beat until stiff peaks form. Do not over beat.
- Add vanilla essence and fold the whipped cream into cheese mixture and beat briefly to smooth out.
- Spread the filling into the prepared tart crust and allow to chill in the fridge for several hours until its firm.
- Garnish with sliced figs & pistachios and drizzle some honey if desired.
- Slice and serve chilled. The leftover, if any 🙂 can be stored in fridge in covered container upto 3 days.
- You can use any other fruits to garnish like peach, strawberry or blueberries.
- You can replace honey with maple syrup.
- I have used a non stick tart pan so skipped greasing. Alternatively you can grease your pan with some butter to avoid the tart sticking at the bottom.
