We’ve used as many nuts as we could find for this tart, and we don’t regret a thing! The tart is bursting with walnuts, almonds, and macadamia nuts. Also, we’ve added some raisins in the mix to bring some more sweetness. Plus the homemade caramel sauce on top does absolute wonders!

Ingredients

3.5 ounces of walnuts
5 ounces of almonds
4 ounces of macadamia
1 ½ cups of flour
4 ounces of butter
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
½ cup water
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons of raisins

Steps

  1. Add the walnuts, almonds, and macadamia nuts in a baking dish.
  2. Slide the dish into the oven and bake the nuts for the next 20 minutes at 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.
  3. Sift the flour through a strainer and place it in your food processor.
  4. Add the butter, egg yolk, a tablespoon of water, and powdered sugar. Mix until smooth.
  5. Dust your working space with flour and lay the dough on it. Use your hands and shape the dough into a ball. Wrap it in plastic foil. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  6. Lay the dough on your working space and level it until thin.
  7. Lay it in a round tart dish, approximately 12 inches (30 cm in diameter).
  8. Remove the excess dough and level it well. Pinch with a fork.
  9. Slide the dish into the oven and bake it for 25 minutes at 330 degrees F/165 degrees C.
  10. Heat a skillet over medium heat, and add the sugar in it. Add the remaining water and heat it until bubbles start forming at the surface.
  11. Give it a good stir, and add the whipping cream. Cook on low heat for 25 minutes to obtain a smooth caramel.
  12. Add the roasted nuts and raisins over the tart crust.
  13. Pour the caramel and bake it again, this time for 25 minutes at 330 degrees F/165 degrees C.
