Raspberry Frangipane Tart

There are few desserts/pastries that are sure to impress like a well-made Frangipane tart. I am beyond in love with the subtle almond flavour the Frangipane cream filling adds. Add some tart, juicy berries and a thin, crisp crust and you have pastry perfection.

I’ve made Frangipane before but used Nectarines and although this is an equally delicious way of making this tart, the raspberries add an incredible dimension of flavour that can only be achieved with slightly sour fruit. I decided to spread a thin layer of good quality raspberry preserves on the pastry before adding the filling to pump up the raspberry flavour.

I served this as dessert when we had guests last week and everyone raved about how phenomenal it was. Probably my favourite dessert at the moment and I can’t wait to bake it again. Definitely a show stopper.
