This recipe is fairly straightforward - puff pastry, vanilla sugar, light muscovado sugar (you can use light brown sugar), and figs - no measuring whatsoever (unless you want to make your own puff pastry - like I did). If you don’t have any vanilla sugar on hand, I wouldn’t fret, simply use natural cane or granulated sugar, the tarts will taste just as great. The pistachio whipped cream that I served with this is fairly straight forward, as well - it’s just sweetened whipped cream with a small handful of crushed pistachio nuts folded in.
