The Technique

Peach Frangipane Tartlets

Frangipane in the simplest form is a filling prepared with almonds most often used in tarts. It’s quick to make & highlights seasonal fruit beautifully truly allowing it to shine. Once portioned into a homemade pastry crust, sliced or diced apricots, nectarines, peaches or pears may be placed over the top in a decorative pattern. As the tart bakes, the filling puffs around & sometimes over them to suspend the fruit within. A simple dusting of confectioners sugar is all that is needed to dress this lovely dessert for most any occasion from bridal showers & teas to outdoor barbecue & grilling gatherings. Learn how to make a miniature version of a classic in your own kitchen.
