Dried Fruit Tart Recipe at

Combine the flour, ground hazelnuts, sugar and butter in a food processor. Process to a coarse meal. Add the egg and water and process until the mixture just forms a mass. Gently pat together into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap.. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


Combine the prunes, apricots, apple and raisins in a saucepan. Add enough water to cover and simmer until the fruit is tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the fruit and return it to the saucepan. Add the sugar, walnuts, melted butter and brandy. Simmer for 5 minutes. Cool.

Roll out two-thirds of the pastry and line a 10-inch pie pan, leaving a 1/2 inch overhang. Spoon in the filling, piling into the center. Roll out the remaining pastry and cut into narrow strips. Arrange the strips in a lattice pattern over the top of the pie. Fold in the edge of the crust and crimp. Brush with a little beaten egg. Bake until the top is golden, about 30-35 minutes.
