Fig tart ( tarta de higos)

I've always been absolutely in love with figs, and I grew up eating figs when I was little and spent many summers in a small place in the south where my uncle Miguel had a great fig tree in his yard.
We are in the time of figs here (late summer) and when I buy figs it is a struggle to do something while the others are eating them.
I get to make this tart and I had someones  saved.

This delicious tarta is adapted from : The pretty blog


1  1/2 cup  all purpose flour
50 grams caster sugar
pinch of salt
125 grams cold butter diced
30 ml ice water


100 ground almonds
1 cup icing sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon almond essence
300 grams figs halved


For the pastry:
Place the flour, sugar, salt and butter in a food processor (or by hand).
Pulse until it resembles breadcrumbs, then add the iced water all at once while the motor is running. As soon as the dough starts come together, remove it from the bowl onto a floured surface. Make a ball and then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30  minutes, then  roll out on a lightly floured surface and press into a greased medium size tart tin.
preheat oven to 190°c.

For the filling:

Place the almonds, icing sugar, eggs and essence in a food processor  and process for 30 seconds. Pour into the pastry lined tart tin, then carefully arrange halved figs (cut side up) inside the tin. Bake for 25 minutes until set and golden brown. Cool, then slice and serve.

Raisins brioche (Brioche con pasas)

Love brioche bread and one of my favorite on Tea time.
You can eat alone or with jam or cheese or others.
This is a basic brioche recipe, soft, light and delicious.
This is actually a very easy dough to make.
And if you would like see others recipes look in my label BREADS  I have other brioche recipes.
We ate yesterday with my mom and the kids only with some strawberry jam.

Source:  (Pain brioche aux raisins) Cuisine actuelle


375 grams all purpose flour
180 grams butter
 15 grams fresh yeast  
1 egg
15 cl whole milk
100 grams sugar
 1/2 teaspoon salt
120 grams  dry raisins

For glaze 
1 medium orange (the juice )
and 1 yolk
or yolk and milk


Heat the milk and butter in a saucepan until the butter is completely melted. Drain the fresh yeast in 6 cl of warm water.

Pour the flour into a bowl and add the sugar and salt. Dig a hole in the center and pour the dissolved yeast, the mixture of milk and butter warmed, as well as the egg previously beaten.
Mix until a smooth paste is obtained and kned it by folding it several times on itself.
Cover with a clean cloth and let rinse about 1 hours in a warm place.
Put the raisins in a bowl of warm water.
Work the dough again with the drained raisins.
You can shape the dough in many ways, a classic brioche (big ball with smaller ball in hole on top)or you can make 6 equal sized balls and arrange themn in a bread pan  (mine is 26 cm x 13 cm) 
Just before baking brush the brioche with the egg wash (be careful).
Cover with floured clingfilm and let to rise again for 1 hour.Preheat your oven at 190°c (375° F) for the first 10 minutes, then lower to 160° (320 °F) for another 20 minutes.
Bake until the bread is well risen and golden and glossy.
Let cool to room temperature  before slicing.
