Gooseberry tart

It's an easy recipe from my grandmother that takes no longer than 30 minutes to make!

The recipe for one gooseberry tart:

Ingredients (dough):

250 g flour

125 g soft butter (room temperature)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons water

3 tablespoons sugar

1 egg

Ingredients (filling):

500 g gooseberries, washed

200 ml cream

3 tablespoons sugar

1 packet vanilla sugar

1 egg

Preheat the oven to 185 °C top and bottom heat.

Put the flour and baking powder in a bowl, add the butter, and mix with your hands. (or machine) Make a hole in the middle and put the water, sugar, and egg in it. Now mix this again quickly (I prefer to mix it with my hands), and quickly knead it into a smooth dough.

Roll out the dough and place it in a cake tin. Grease the cake tin well beforehand so that the dough does not stick.

Pour the gooseberries on top of the dough and place in the oven for 20 minutes.

For the filling, mix the cream with the egg and sugar. Pour this onto the cake and bake for another 30 minutes.

The tart should be a little brown and needs to cool a little for 2-3 hours. Then chill it. The gooseberries are very sour, so if you like them sweeter, I advise you to add more sugar to the filling.
