Persimmon Tart

Persimmon Tart

I baked a tart filled with almond cream and persimmons. It has the rich taste of autumn.

Ingredients: 1 18cm diameter tart

For the tart crust:
Unsalted butter
50 g
Sugar
30 g
Salt
a pinch
Beaten egg
Half of a medium-sized egg
Cake flour
110 g
For the almond cream:
Unsalted butter
50 g
Sugar
50 g
Beaten egg
1 medium-sized
Rum
1 teaspoon
Almond flour
50 g
Persimmon
1 and a half
To finish:
Apricot Jam (Honey is okay, too)
as needed
Powdered sugar (non-melting type)
a small amount

Steps

1. 〔Make the tart crust:〕Bring the egg and butter to room temperature. Sift the cake flour.
2. Put the butter in a bowl and mix with a whisk until creamy. Add the sugar a little at a time while mixing.
3. Add the salt and mix. Add the beaten egg a little at a time while mixing.
4. Add the flour and mix with a scraper until it's not floury anymore. Bring it together and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for two hours.
5. Sandwich the dough between sheets of plastic and roll out thinly. Line the tart mold with the dough. Roll the rolling pin over the top of the tart mold to cut off any excess dough.
6. Poke holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork.
7. (Make the almond cream) Bring the egg and butter to room temperature. Sift the almond powder.
8. Put the butter in a bowl and mix with a whisk until creamy. Add the sugar in a little at a time while mixing.
9. Add the beaten egg a little bit at a time while thoroughly mixing.
10. Add the rum and mix. Add the almond powder and mix some more.
11. (Bake the tart) Pour the almond cream into the tart. Level out the surface of the cream.
12. Remove the peel and seeds from the persimmon and slice thinly. Arrange the slices on the almond cream. Bake in a preheated oven at 180゚C for 35~40 minutes.
13. After it is baked, brush the surface with the jam while the tart is still hot. When it is completely cool, remove the tart from the mold and dust powdered sugar around the edge. Garnish with mint.

Story Behind this Recipe

My parents sent me a ton of persimmons, so I baked this tart.
