Easy Best Date Tart

Date desserts are always loved. Perfect any time a year, and it tastes great with a cup of coffee any time a day. It is so easy to make, and takes no time to prepare.

Ingredients

  • ***for CRUST:

  • 250 gm Digestive biscuits, finely crushed

  • 2/3 cup Oat meal (in Arabic: Shofan)

  • 112 gm (or 1 stick) butter, melted

  • ¼ cup sugar (or 2 tbsp maple syrup)

  • ***for FILLING:

  • 1 cup dates, deseeded and chopped

  • ½ cup almonds, finely chopped

  • ½ cup walnuts, finely chopped

  • 2 (170gm) cans thick cream (in Arabic: qeshta)

  • ¾ (397ml) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 tsp cinnamon+ ½ tsp ginger powder+ ¼ tsp cardamom powder

  • 2 eggs+ 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  • 1.

    To prepare crust: mix crushed biscuits+ oat meal+ sugar. Add melted butter and mix well. Press mixture into bottom of a 11 inch springform pan. Keep in freezer for 15 minute.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, prepare filling: mix filling ingredients together with a fork till well combined. If batter is too thick, add little milk.

  • 3.

    Pour filling over crust. Bake in 390F (200C) preheated oven for 10 minutes then reduce temperature to 340F (170F) and continue baking for another 20-25 minutes.

  • 4.

    Serve warm with some cream or thick cream.

Notes

***When pressing the biscuits mixture into the baking pan, you can use a 9 inch pan and press the mixture to bottom and sides of pan as well.
***½ tsp cinnamon or ¼ tsp nutmeg can be added to the biscuit mixture if desired.
***The tart can be baked in a water-bath, but you'll need to wrap the pan from the outside with aluminium foil to prevent water getting into sprinform pan and to the tart. This would prevent getting over baked sides.

Would dried dates be good for this or fresh is best? They are $30 per kg here fresh -sigh-

well dear , i never tried it with dried.. u know in these area it's available in packs in the supermarket, different kinds, different prices.. ranges from 10$/kg up to 100$ or mayb more, so it depends on the type ..but for such recipes, we would use the 10-15$/ kg one.. check some cheaper kind but still taste good..
try it with the dried and see how it turns out .. i think it'll be ok, just ur gonna need to soak it in water for some time first.. then continue with the steps..
