Step 1

Grease a 23cm round, shallow cake pan and line base with baking paper.

Step 2

To make pastry, process butter and cream cheese in a food processor until creamy, then add flour and process until mixture just comes together to form a dough.

Step 3

Transfer to a clean bench and gently knead into a smooth ball and using clean hands, press pastry over base and up side of pan to within 1cm of the top edge and then refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Step 4

To make apple filling, place apple in a single layer on a tray lined with absorbent kitchen paper, to remove excess liquid and then arrange over base of pastry case.

Step 5

Place eggs, sugar, syrup, butter, flour and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and then stir in pecans and then pour evenly over apple and place pan on an oven tray.

Step 6

Cook in a moderate oven (180C) for about 45 minutes, or until pastry is golden around edge and filling is just set in the centre. Remove and stand for 30 minutes.

Step 7

Transfer tart to a serving plate and dust with sifted icing sugar and serve warm or at room temperature with cream.
