Fig Tart with Pecans and Goat Cheese

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time45 mins
Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Servings: 8


For the Pastry

  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter cold
  • cold water

For the Filling

  • 10 to 12 fresh figs cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup roughly chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups crumbled goat cheese
  • olive oil
  • 3 tbsp honey


  • In a large bowl add the flour and cold butter. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender until it resembles cornmeal. Add the water gradually and form a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 360 F degrees.
  • Roll out the pastry dough into a circle and use it to line a 9 inch tart pan or pie pan. Cover the tart with parchment paper and some weights (like dry beans) to prevent the paper to uncover the dough. Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove the paper and the weight and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • To fill the tart shell, first add the goat cheese and arrange evenly. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.
  • Arrange the figs on the tart, then add the pecans. Drizzle with honey.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Serve warm.
