Spiced Apple Filo Tart

Spiced Apple Filo Tart

50g walnuts – toasted and finely chopped

75g gingernuts – crushed

50g brown sugar

½ tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

Castor sugar – extra

5 sheets of filo pastry

2-3 apples – cored and thinly sliced

Melted butter –for brushing

Icing sugar – for dusting

 

Preheat oven to 180C.

Combine the walnuts, biscuits, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and lay 1 sheet of filo pastry on top. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle a quarter of the nut mixture evenly on top.  Place another sheet of filo on top and repeat the process until all the sheets have been used. Brush the top surface with melted butter.

Arrange the apple slices on top of the pastry, slightly overlapping and leaving a 2cm border around the edges.  Brush the apples with the remaining butter and sprinkle with castor sugar.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until the filo is golden brown and the fruit is soft.  Cut into portions and serve warm with either whipped cream or ice-cream.

Serves 6.
