  • 1 baked blind pastry case, 20cm diameter
  • 400g stoned dates
  • 4 tablespoons Anisette
  • 100g shelled and chopped walnuts
  • rind of 1 tangerine, finely chopped
  • extra walnuts for decorating


    1. Chop the dates in small pieces and put in a saucepan.
    2. Add 3 tablespoons water and put on a moderate heat, till they start melting. You have to be very careful, because the dates should not melt completely.
    3. Lower heat. Add the walnuts, Anisette and finely chopped rind of 1 tangerine. Blend well.
    4. Remove from heat and put in a bowl and put aside to cool.
    5. When completely cold, fill the pastry case with this filling. Smooth the top.
    6. Decorate with the extra walnuts.
