Wow, what an incredible outcome. This is an involved, multi-step pastry but much of it can be prepared in steps ahead of time. Figgy jam poached in wine and spices, sweetened goat cheese layer, herb-citrus shortbread and a nutty crumble topping. Too much? You might think so until taking a bite, and then another, and perhaps a tiny slice more.
This treat is perfect for breakfast, dessert, afternoon tea or coffee (really at any point in your day). Not too sweet, the figs are balanced by citrus zest and some tangy chevre.
Just perhaps, this is one of those worth repeating : )
