Method again after I was a Daring Baker, I made a Bakewell Tart, which has a shortbread crust, jam over that, then a frangipane…an almond filling form of like a sponge cake. It was scrumptious.

A few instances within the final 10 years I’ve additionally posted about an apricot tart that I really like making. I exploit both a candy cookie kind dough or a prepared made pie crust, both canned or recent and peeled apricots, and a frangipane that is just a bit denser than the Bakewell Tart.

This week I made a tart that was a mix of these two. It had a pie crust formed right into a tart pan and blind baked, a jam layer over that for taste and to maintain the tart backside from getting soggy (the Bakewell half, together with the frangipane), recent peeled and pitted apricots from our native farmstand…soo aromatic!…plus the denser frangipane. Aside from having an excessive amount of filling, (which went excessive of the shell and baked on, making it not possible to take away the tart pan sides and making it troublesome to serve) it was an incredible mixture and can be repeated.

I am positive that you would be able to make this with canned apricots, and you need to use any taste of jam that you simply like. In case you have almond flour or meal you’re half method to a beautiful filling! If you do not have almond flour or meal, use the identical weight of almonds and grind them to a high quality powder in your food processor, utilizing among the sugar to buffer the grinding in order that you do not find yourself with a paste of almonds. You should definitely use the remainder of the sugar within the filling…it is simple to neglect.

This actually is a good way to bake with apricots. I get pleasure from recent apricots as is, however I feel that cooking them actually permits their superior taste to essentially shine. Since you get massive items of the apricot on this tart, the tartness and strong taste are absolutely skilled, enhanced by the candy jam (combined berry on this case) and the moist however not too candy almond filling. Sweetie actually preferred the crust, too. It added simply the right additional texture to the tart. A winner!
