I have a weakness for desserts made from ground almonds. When I am in the mood to make something a little more elaborate, I like to add a frangipane to my usual fruit tart recipe which I will post another time.
The Frangipane Layer
4/3 cup ground almonds
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
200g unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs till well incorporated. Mix in flour and ground almonds till well combined.
2. Bake the assembled pie (store bought puff pastry, frangipane and pear slices) at 180deg C for about 55 mins or till done. Enjoy!
