    To make the marsala custard, beat the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour until pale and thick. Place the cream, milk and vanilla in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Whisk into the egg mixture then pour into a clean saucepan. Place over a low heat and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and cooked. Stir in the marsala, then strain into a serving jug. Set aside. (Gently reheat before serving if desired.)
  • Step 3
    Meanwhile, to make the pastry, place butter, flour and icing sugar in a food processor, and process until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the water and process until the mixture forms a smooth ball. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to chill.
  • Step 4
    Preheat the oven to 190?C.
  • Step 5
    Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board to a 40cm circle, then transfer to a baking sheet or pizza tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
  • Step 6
    Drain the fruit well and remove and discard the tea bag, vanilla bean and cinnamon stick.
  • Step 7
    Sprinkle base of the tart with the amaretti crumbs, leaving a 5cm border. Top with dried fruits and sprinkle with the nuts.
