Method :
  • For the pastry, mix the flours and salt in a bowl. Add the fats and rub in until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the egg yolk and 30-45ml iced water to bind. Form into a ball, wrap and chill for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 220oC/425oF/Gas 7. Roll out the pastry and use to line a 23cm pie dish. Use the trimmings to stamp out heart shapes. Arrange on the pastry case rim with a little water.
  • Prick the pastry base, line with greaseproof paper and fill with baking beans. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and beans and bake until golden, 3-6 minutes more.
  • Whisk together the eggs, salt and sugar. Stir in the butter and maple syrup. Set the pastry case on a baking sheet. Pour in the filling, then sprinkle with the nuts.
  • Bake until just set, about 35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Decorate with piped whipped cream.
