Fresh Fig Tarts

These figs may be small in size, but they sure aren’t small on flavor. I got them from my daughter’s fig tree, which probably needs some pruning to achieve larger fruit. But I digress. These little guys were perfect for these scrumptious tarts. And the best part is they are super easy to prepare.

Servings:  8 Tarts

Fresh Fig Tarts


  • 1 package of frozen puff pastry (you will use both pastries)
  • 1/2 cup almonds, crushed in a food processor
  • 1 1/2 lbs fresh figs, washed and sliced in half. If the figs are very large, cut them into slices.
  • 2 TBS fig jam (or pretty much any jam you have in your fridge)
  • 2 TBS dark rum
  • 4 TBS turbinado sugar
  • Garnish:
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the jam and rum, and set aside.
  3. Lay out and lightly roll the puff pastry just to make sure it is nice and even. Cut each puff pastry into 4 pieces, and lay out of the lined baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle crushed almonds in the center of each puff pastry piece.
  5. Arrange the figs on top of the almonds, leaving about a 1/4-1/2 inch of pastry all the way around.
  6. Brush the pastry edges with the fig & rum mixture. Sprinkle each tart with turbinado sugar.
  7. Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool.
  9. Top the cooled tarts with any remaining crushed almonds and shredded coconut.
