Brûléed Fig Tart

A sweet Brûléed Fig Tart dessert recipe from Nestle Docello. Portions: 10


  • Ingredients
  • 100g plain flour
  • 60g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1tbsp icing sugar
  • 250ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 250ml whipping cream
  • 55g NESTLÉ DOCELLO Crème Brûlée
  • 6 fresh figs, thinly sliced
  • 45g caster sugar


Place the flour, butter and icing sugar into a food processor and blend to form fine breadcrumbs. Remove from the blender and pour into a greased 11” x 7” loose-based rectangular tart tin. Press the pastry firmly and evenly into the base and sides.
Bake the pastry case for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 180˚C.
Remove from the oven and allow the pastry to cool in the mould.
Heat the milk and cream in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the brûlée powder, whisking continuously for approximately 2 minutes. Pour mix into the cooled mould and arrange the fig slices on top. Place in the refrigerator to set for approximately 35 minutes.
Once set, remove from the fridge. Carefully remove from the mould and place onto desired serving plate. Dust the tart with the caster sugar and either glaze with a blowtorch or place under the grill for 2-3 minutes until the sugar caramelises.
