Ingredients (serves 4):

For the filling:

• 2 Williams pears
• 2 cooking apples
• 2 oranges
• 3 tablespoons of sultanas/raisins
• 20 almond biscuits
• 2 dessert spoons of sugar
• cinnamon
• shaved almonds


Squeeze the oranges. Cut the fruit into small pieces and then place in a mixing bowl with the raisins to marinate with the juice from the oranges. Remove the short crust from the refrigerator and roll out on oven proof paper, arrange into the mould and arrange the border. Take the biscuits and break into crumbs between your fingers onto the pastry forming a uneven layer. Place the marinated fruit without the juice onto the pastry and biscuit followed by the squeezed raisins and lastly the shaved almonds. Powder the tart with sugar and a little of the cinnamon then place in a hot oven and cook for 40 minutes at 160°C.
