Cranberry Bakewell Tart

Cranberry Bakewell Tart

Showing a slice of the Cranberry Bakewell Tart

As you may recall from one of my pervious posts I had been busy making Cranberry & Port Preserve. I had promised myself this year that I would bake from Nigella Lawson’s "Feast cookbook" - the Cranberry Bakewell Tart. Link for the recipe on line. [Link Here].

The pastry to this tart has a good crisp texture with the flavour of almond flowing through, followed by a layer of cranberry jam or in my case Cranberry & Port Preserve, last but not least a wonderful clementine infused iced topping. If you haven’t any gold sugar stars to decorate the top, you could cut out little stars in marzipan for decoration making the almond theme extended. This tart makes a gorgeous festive dessert and one that would look perfect served at this time of year!
