Ingredients

for
1
spring-form tin, approx. 26 cm in diameter
For the pastry
2.333 cups
0.333 cup
1
¾ cup
butter (in flakes)
All purpose flour (for the work surface)
For the filling
¾ cup
1 ½ cups
chopped Walnut
cup
3 tablespoons
You will also need
2 tablespoons
currant Jam
5 ounces
Dark chocolate (chopped)
12

Preparation steps

1.
For the pastry, mix together the flour, sugar and a pinch of salt. Form a mound on the work surface and make a well in the centre. Break the egg into the well and dot the butter around the outside. Using a knife, chop the ingredients together to give a crumbly texture, then quickly knead together by hand to form a smooth pastry. Shape into a ball, wrap in cling film and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
2.
Heat the oven to 180°C (160°C in a fan oven), 375°F, gas 5 and butter the tin.
3.
For the filling, caramelise the sugar in a pan. Add the nuts, stirring, and finally add the cream. Simmer over a moderate heat, stirring, until the caramel has slackened, then add the honey and stir in.
4.
On a floured work surface, roll out half the pastry to slightly larger than the base of the tin, and line the tin with it, creating a lip around the edge. Spread the base with jam then top evenly with the nut and caramel mixture.
5.
Roll out the remaining pastry to form a lid and place over the nut mixture. Press the edges together firmly and bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes.
6.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot, but not boiling water, remove from the heat and cool until lukewarm.
7.
Take the pie out of the oven and leave to cool.
8.
Spread the pie with the chocolate. If desired, put some of the chocolate in a freezer bag and cut off the corner to make a tiny hole, then use this to decorate the top of the pie. Garnish with walnut halves and leave to dry.
9.
Carefully release from the tin, cut into slices and serve.
