Orange and Almond Tart

Pair with Cream

As a general rule, it is considered appropriate for the Sherry drunk at the end of a meal to be sweeter than the pudding with which it is paired. For Sherries served with puddings, we mainly recommend Creams and Pedro Ximénez which are all sweet, but totally different.

Ingredients

100g 
butter
150g 
plain flour
1 teaspoon 
icing sugar
200g 
orange marmelade
250g 
sugar
250g 
ground almonds
eggs
grated orange zest
150g

Directions

Serves 6

Pre-heat oven 180ºC

Whizz pastry ingredients in processor, and mould into 17.5 cm flan dish. Cool in fridge. Place in a hot tray and bake blind for 20 minutes, and leave to cool.

Spread the marmalade over the base and sprinkle the raisins. Mix the sugar, ground almonds, eggs and orange zest then spoon over the marmalade.

Bake for 40 minutes until golden brown. When cool cut into slices, they will keep for several days in an airtight tin.

serving and consuming

Pairing Cream with food

The ideal temperature at which to serve a Cream is 12ºC. It may also be consumed as an aperitif, or as a cocktail served with ice and a slice of orange.

It is the ideal dessert wine; perfect to accompany fruit (melon, orange) pastries or ice-cream. It can also be paired very well with foie gras and blue cheeses.

Cream fast facts

Always chilled

Serve chilled, between 10 & 12º C.

Not only a dessert wine

Delicious with pastries and fruit, but also with the foie.

Style of Glass

Serve in a white wine glass, or wide rimmed glass with ice.
