Treacle & Apple Tart

Steven found this recipe on The Free From Fairy so off I went to buy golden syrup and although the recipe calls for shortcrust pastry, I bought Jus Rol gluten free pastry.

1 packet of Jus Rol gluten free pastry
400 g golden syrup
75 gluten free breadcrumbs (I used Clearspring)
75 g ground almonds
1 apple
1 lemon

Serves 6-8

Heat the oven to 180ΒΊ.   The recipe calls for a 9" loose bottom tin, but I only had a 7" tin, so made a couple of small tarts in a bun tin too.   Cut the pastry to fit the tin and carefully place in the tin, pressing down firmly.   Reserve any left over pastry for decoration.

Place some baking paper on top of the pastry and use baking beans to blind bake, I did not have baking beans, so I used crumpled up tinfoil.

Bake for 10 mins, then remove the baking beans (foil and baking paper in my case) and continue to cook for a further 10 mins, until the pastry starts to brown.

Zest and juice the lemon, peel and grate the apple and put into a bowl, with the rest of the filling ingredients and combine thoroughly.

Pour the filling into the part cooked pastry case, decorate however you wish, I made a criss cross pattern.

Reduce the oven temperature to 160ΒΊ and bake for a further 25-30 mins, covering with foil, if the pastry is browning too quickly, until the treacle filling is set.

Serve the tart with custard, cream, ice cream or whatever combination you fancy, I chose oat cream and the treacle tart was scrumptious.
