Nutella tart with fig jam

There is no dessert that is so popular and appreciated by children as a gorgeous tart. Tarts, of course, are made in many variants as a way to encourage - in a healthy and nutritious way - the appetite of hungry children, although to tell the truth even adults will devour a tart in no time if given a chance. Our suggestion today is a delicious tart made from a very unusual combination, but one that is all the tastier for that, combining figs and an all-time Italian classic that has conquered the world - namely, Nutella. Thanks to the creativity of our chef you are going to have the chance to try this superlative tart and you really mustn’t miss out, especially if you’re planning a special party: what could be nicer than a lovely slice of this tart with a good quality sweet wine?

Prepare a shortcrust pastry with addition of a tablespoon of cocoa powder; let the dough rest in refrigerator for 30 min. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to form the base of the tart - roll it out very thinly form with edges that are not too high: it’s meant to be a thin tart. Lightly spread Nutella across the base, but don’t use too much. Spread the fig jam on top of the Nutella. Then, using a teaspoon, make small nicks in the edge whilst pinching the dough at the same time. Bake at 180°C for 15 min in a fan oven.

Whilst you’re making the pastry, be careful not to let it get too warm: cool your hands, let the dough rest in the refrigerator, and then roll it out with a cooled rolling pin.
According to legend, the tart was born in the Gulf of Naples where Partenope lived, and in whose honour the local inhabitants donated the ingredients (each with a different meaning) with which to make it.
