Preparation Time:
60 mins
Baking Time:
10 people


For the dough 
For the filling 
1 egg 
250 g pitted dates 
80 g almonds with skin 
50 g pistachio kernels 
1 tsp ground cinnamon 
1⁄2 tsp ground cardamom 
2 tbsp honey



Preheat oven (top/bottom heat: 200 °C/ convection: 175 °C).

The Pastry Dough

For the pastry dough, knead the flour, salt, sugar, egg and Oldenburger Butter with the dough hook of the mixer and cover up to leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

The Fruit and Almond Tarte

Cut the dates into rings for the filling, chop the almonds and finely chop the pistachios. Stir eggs with cinnamon, cardamom and Oldenburger SHANI Whipping Cream.

Preparing the Tarte

Roll out the dough on a floured work surface (about 34 cm wide), place in the greased form and cut out the excess smoothly. Pierce with a fork several times, spread dates, almonds and pistachios on the bottom, pour the egg-cream mixture and drizzle honey on top. Bake the tarte on the middle rack of the oven for 15–18 minutes. Allow to cool down as desired or serve directly.

The Final Touch

When serving this tarte, you can top it off with some fresh whipped Oldenburger SHANI Whipping cream. In Europe it is very common that cakes and tarts are served with whipped cream. The cream brings out the flavour even better. It also adds some welcome moisture.

Tips from Chefs to Chefs

01. How firm and stable whipped cream turns out, depends on the cream’s fat content. You will obtain best results with a cream with a fat contents of at least 30%. The higher the fat content the more stable the cream. Cream should always be refrigerated between 4 and 10 °C before whipping. If you wish the whipped cream to stay firm even longer, a cream stiffener can be added during whipping.

02. Cream supports a lighter and less buttery filling in cakes and is greatly appreciated by many chefs. At the same time, it is a wholesome natural product.
