Recipe: Fig Jam Tart

This tart is simply divine! The texture of the dough reminds Brittany of shortbread pucks with a taste of cinnamon.  The heart of the tart remains soft.  It’s up to you to use your favorite jam: raspberry, strawberry, apricot or rhubarb, or why not try it with milk jam or nutella!?

The benefits: this tart gets better with time and will keep for several weeks (well packed in a cool place).
