Fig and Sesame Tart with Cardamom Orange Cream

120 mins (prep 45)
14 ingredients
makes 6 to 8 servings
Dried fruits and nuts are common in Moroccan pastries, but this tart is something special — the richness of the dough and the pop of the sesame seeds bring out that honeyed quality you normally associate with fresh figs. The cardamom cream is whisper-light, and the fresh orange segments are refreshingly cool.
