I am so excited that it is fig season! Not only are figs delicious and nutritious, they are beautiful!!! This tart made a stunning dessert at my recent dinner party that people could not stop talking about.
Using a food processor, this tart only took about 30 minutes from start to finish (not counting refrigeration time of course). It can be made at least a day before serving too!
I picked up the Amaretti cookies in the bulk cookie section of Whole Foods. Most Amaretti cookies are made with Almond Flour making this tart Gluten Free, but make sure to check the ingredient list on the cookies. The added Amaretto is not necessary (meaning don’t go out and buy an entire bottle just for this little amount), but if you have it, use it. It definitely adds to the tart and brings all of the flavors together.
