Apple, Pear & Sunmuscat Filo Tart

PREP: 15 MINS | COOK: 20 MINS | SERVES: 8 as a snack

What you’ll need…

5 sheets filo pastry

60g vegan butter (we used Nuttelex Buttery), melted

40g pecans, toasted and chopped

30g Sunbeam Walnuts, toasted and chopped

100g Sunbeam Slivered Almonds, toasted

50g Sunbeam Sunmuscats

50g fresh breadcrumbs

½ tsp ground cinnamon

3 tbsp maple syrup

2 apples, cores removed, cut into thin wedges

2 pears, cores removed, cut into thin wedges

1 tbsp coconut sugar


Preheat oven to 200ºC (fan forced 180ºC).  Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Combine all nuts, sunmuscats, breadcrumbs and cinnamon, toss to combine then drizzle over the maple syrup and mix well.  Reserve 1/3 cup of this mixture.

Lay 1 sheet of filo onto prepared tray.  Brush evenly with melted butter, sprinkle over ¼ of the nut mixture.  Brush a second sheet with butter and arrange on top, repeat with another ¼ of the nut mixture.  Repeat twice more, so you have 4 layers of brushed filo and nut mixture, then brush remaining filo sheet with butter and place on top. 

Arrange apple and pear slices on top, brush with remaining butter then sprinkle over reserved nut mixture and coconut sugar.

Bake for 25-30 mins until pastry is golden.  Cut into slices and serve with rocket.
