A buttery shortbread cookie tart cradling luscious creamy honey caramel infused with cayenne pepper and loaded with salted roasted peanuts. The tart is great on its own or served with fresh whipped cream on the side.

PastryHoney Caramel Peanut Filling
  • 250 g All-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp Icing sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 125 g Chilled unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp Iced water
  • 270 g Caster sugar
  • 80 ml Honey
  • 60 ml Water
  • 125 ml Heavy cream, room-temperature
  • 50 g Unsalted butter, chopped, room-temperature
  • 1⁄2 tsp Cayenne pepper powder
  • 150 g Salted roasted peanuts
  • 150 g Paprika flavoured roasted peanuts
  • Sea salt flakes
  1. For the pastry, process the flour, icing sugar, salt and butter in a food processor until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add egg yolk and water. Process until mixture just comes together. Turn onto a work surface. Knead gently until just smooth. Shape into a disk. Wrap the dough disk in plastic and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Roll out dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until 4mm thick. Line a 35x11 cm rectangular fluted tart tin and a 12cm round fluted tart tin with removable base with pastry. Line with baking paper and pastry weights or beans. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove paper and weights or beans and bake for a further 15 minutes for the rectangular one, and 8-10 minutes for the small round one or until golden. Set aside to cool.
  3. Cook sugar, honey and water in a medium heavy-based saucepan over low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium. Simmer, without stirring, for 7 minutes or until mixture reaches 173C/345F on a sugar thermometer. Quickly stir in heavy cream, butter, cayenne pepper and nuts. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches 248F/120C. Remove from the heat and quickly pour into tart. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Set aside to cool to room-temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour. Cut tart into wedges and serve with whipped cream, if desired.
