Apple Frangipane Tart



This tart has that perfect combination of buttery and crumbly pastry, sweet almond cream, and slices of apple. Apples are one of the more versatile fruits and in baking, it is important to use the right type of apple i.e. one that retains its shape when baked and Granny Smith Apples is the one. They are readily available year round and their tart flavor and firm texture make them ideal not only for this tart, but in pies too.


Frangipane is the French name for a rich pastry filling/topping whose principal ingredient is ground almonds or almond paste.
