This recipe is adapted from one that appeared on The Great British Baking Show, called “Mary’s Bakewell Tart”. I changed a few things. I used Tart Cherry Jam, rather than making my own raspberry jam. I also topped the tart with sliced almonds and confectioners’ sugar, rather than a confectioners’ sugar icing, and added a couple pinches of salt.
The jam I used was This one.
The original recipe was written with weights of ingredients, in grams, rather than Imperial measurements. I calculated measurements from the weighted ingredients I used. So I recommend using the weights, as noted, if you have a scale. Special equipment needed: a 9″ Tart pan or 9″ Springform pan, either with removeable bottom. It is worth mentioning that, like many baked goods, the flavor of this tart improves over time. If you can make it a day in advance, I highly recommend it. I like to keep the tart in the refrigerator because it makes the slices much easier and prettier.
I use about 2 lb. dried beans as pie weights. I keep them in a Zippered plastic bag in my pantry, marked Pie Beans, reusing the same ones over and over again.
