Ingredients Method

Ingredients

For the shortcrust pastry dough:

  • 125 g plain flour
  • 125 g rye flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 135 g butter
  • 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
  • 75 ml of iced water

 

For the filling:

  • 5 Zespri Green kiwifruit
  • 225 g of mascarpone
  • 30 g honey
  • 3 tablespoons of strawberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons of shelled, raw pistachios

Method

  1. Cut the butter into cubes and hand mix with the other ingredients in a bowl. Form a ball with the dough, cover with foil and put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Line the baking tray with the foil and roll out the dough on top with a rolling pin. Brush with the beaten egg and cook in the oven, preheated to 180 ºC, for 25-30 minutes. Remove and let cool.
  3. Using a whisk, mix the mascarpone with the honey. Peel the Zespri kiwifruit and cut them into slices.
  4. Spread the prepared base with the mascarpone mixture, the warmed jam and place the slices of kiwifruit on top. Top with the chopped pistachios.

 

Tip:  You can also decorate the cake with some red berries.
