I’ve been checking out recipes lately for fig tarts, but this one from Picard was irresistibly easy. Picard is a French company that sells frozen delicacies, and since figs are not yet in season, I used frozen figs from Picard for this tart. But I can’t wait till fig season to try this with fresh figs. It was simple to make, not-too-sweet, and the thyme flavor mingles with the figs in an interesting way.

Ingredients:

1 round pie crust

600 grams ripe figs, quartered

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon dried thyme

Preheat the oven to 200° C (390°F)

Roll out the pie crust and arrange it in your pie plate.

I have a wonderful pie plate with perforated holes that I bought at Lakeland, the holes make the crust cook on the bottom as well so that it turns nice and crispy. Lakeland is a British company, and the perforated pie tins come in various formats and can be ordered online.

Sautée the figs with their juices, honey, and thyme in a frying pan fo 5-6 minutes.

Since my figs were defrosted, they had quite a bit of liquid with them, I would recommend adding a little water if using fresh figs.

Place the figs with the insides facing up on the pie crust.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Serve with a topping of greek yogurt and whipped cream. (50/50)
