If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my history making these tarts filled with caramel and dried fruits, but if you didn’t, here I bring you the recipe. They are really simple to make and so delicious. The idea of these tarts I took it from the pastry shop Karamel in Paris, from the pastry chef Nicolas Haelewyn.
When we lived in Paris this was one of my favorite pastry shops (though I have to admit it is really hard to choose only one, when you have a patisserie in every corner) but I love his concept, all the products he sells have caramel, because it is a memory he has from his childhood, so he decided that every single product was going to have it in one way or another, to do a sort of a tribute to this delicious preparation.
Magically he manages to give amazing flavor to every single preparation he makes, they all go well with caramel. I tried cookies with dry fruits and caramel that were delicious, I wanted to try the tarts, but they were sold out, so I decided to make my own version.
I added the dry fruits I had in my kitchen, pecans, walnuts, Chilean hazelnuts, pistachios, but you can use whichever you want, I cannot imagine one that doesn’t go well with caramel.
It is really simple to make, basically, you have to bake the tart cases, then toast the dry fruits to give them more flavor and while they are in the oven you make the caramel. Mix the caramel with the fruits and put it in the tart cases and you are ready to go, delicious tarts in a couple of minutes.
