Oat Tart with Date Filling
Oat Tart with Date Filling

by Juliette de Bairacli Levy

Excerpt from Nature's Children

Filling: two pounds stoned dates, one orange, one lemon (small).

Grate the peels off the orange and lemon, then squeeze out all the juice. Pour the juice over the dates in a pan and heat over low heat for about ten minutes until the dates have softened. Now mix the grated peels into this and set aside to cool.

Oat crust: four ounces butter, one tablespoon maple syrup, one cup milk, two cups flaked oats, half cup flour, half cup sugar.

Melt the butter, then add the syrup and the milk. Mix the dry ingredients separately. Finally, add the two mixtures together, mixing very completely to prevent lumpiness.

Grease a round baking tin, spread the oat crust in the bottom and cook for about twenty minutes at 350°F until a light brown color. When semi-cooked take from oven, press up the sides of the crust with a spoon, to make a low wall for the date filling. Now add filling into the tart and bake for a further ten minutes.

When still warm and soft, cut up into triangular portions of the typical tart shape. Allow the tart to set before removing the portions from the baking tin.
