For 12 pieces you also need: flour for the work surface, fat and flour for the mould, cling film, baking paper, salt, pepper


Knead flour, butter in pieces, egg and 1 pinch of salt until smooth. Wrap dough in foil and chill for about 1 hour. Coarsely chop walnuts and roast them in a pan without fat until golden brown. Add 2 tablespoons of Breitsamer honey and let it caramelise. Remove the caramel nuts from the pan, place them on a piece of baking paper and let them cool down.

Knead the dough again and place it on a floured work surface to form a circle (approx. 26 cm Ø). Grease a tart mould (approx. 26 cm Ø) and dust with flour. Place the dough in the mould, press it lightly and cut off the excess edge. Wash the thyme and shake dry. Pluck the leaves from the stalks, except for a few for garnishing. Crumble 50 g Montagnolo. Cut 300 g of Montagnolo into slices. Mix the crumbled Montagnolo, mustard and thyme leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the cheese mixture on the pastry base.  

Wash the pears, halve, core and cut into slices. Wash, clean and slice the figs. First place the pear slices on the outside of the dough. Arrange the fig slices, Montagnolo slices and Serrano ham overlapping in the middle. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Breitsamer honey. Bake in the preheated oven (electric cooker: 180 °C/ convection oven: 155 °C/ gas: see manufacturer) for about 25 minutes. Take the tart out of the oven and arrange. Garnish with walnut crunch and remaining thyme.
