Fig, apple and hazelnut tart

The autumnal flavours of sweet apple, fig and toasted hazelnuts combine beautifully in this easy tart. Cinnamon sugar is usually available in the spice section of the supermarket. You can easily make it yourself by blending 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon with half a cup of granulated sugar.



1.Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F. Grease a large oven tray.
2.Peel apple, slice thinly crossways; remove and discard seeds.
3.Roll pastry out on a lightly floured sheet of baking paper into a 24cm x 30cm (9½-inch x 12-inch) rectangle. Cut in half lengthways. Arrange apple and figs on pastry. Brush rectangles with butter and half the syrup. Top with hazelnuts and sprinkle with sugar. Slide baking paper with tarts onto oven tray.
4.Bake tarts 20 minutes or until pastry is browned. Drizzle hot tarts with remaining golden syrup.
