Caramel Cashew Tart


This is a bookmarked post from A tasty Challenge. I too am a big fan of Anns House of Sweets like Asha..and this is one of my favourite dessert from there and when Asha posted the recipe, I had to try it out immediately and it is really really Yummy-licious.. Iam sending this to Aipi's  Bookmarked events. Ive done it exactly like Asha, except that I didnt weigh down the tart with beans, also I used baking powder and reduced the quantity to 1/8 spoon.




For the tart:

Maida: 2 cups
Butter: 1/2 cup
Egg Yolk: 1
Sugar:1/4 cup
Baking Powder 1/8 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Cold Water: 4 tbsp

Preheat oven to 200C
Sift the baking powder, flour and salt
Cream butter and sugar and add the egg yolk and combine well.
Add the flour and 4 tbsp water and knead into a stiff dough
Make equal sized (lime) balls (about 14 -15) and flatten either with your hands or with a rolling pin
Line them in a muffin pan and prick the dough with a fork to prevent the tart from raising.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Take out and cool completely.

For the Caramel filling

Sugar: 1/2 cup
Water: 2 tbsp
Salt: a pinch
Fresh Cream: 1/3 cup or a small tub
Cashewnut: 1/2 cup roasted and halved

 

Heat Sugar, salt and water on low heat till it is golden brown in colour. Resist your temptation to stir the syrup...Please do not meddle with it but you can swirl the pan
When it is golden brown, turn off the stove and add the fresh cream and mix well.
Now add the cashewnut, mix everyting and let it cool slightly.

Now take the tart and place the caramel filling in it with the help of a spoon.
Serve and ENJOY!!!!
