I decided to call these almond tarts, as far as I’m concerned there Bakewell Tarts, now having said that I’m expecting comments from Derdyshire folk telling me I’m wrong and then giving me half a dozen alternative recipes, so maybe they should be called Rosies a bit like Bakewell tarts sort of, or maybe I will stick with calling them Almond tarts My sons love these so I ration them.
100gms Ground Almonds
Puff Pastry, you can also use shortcrust, I bought premade.
Jam, I used a homemade mixed fruit, but use what ever you have
Sliced Almonds for topping
Make Frangipan, To do this
Mix together the butter, sugar and ground almonds.
You can make a large tart or individual ones which I did, line a pastry case or cases with the pastry, and spread a little jam on top.
I decided to add a few cherries to the frangipan along with a little Almond extract, this is optional.
Put the Frangipan on top and sprinkle with sliced almonds, not shown here is a half cherry placed in the middle.
Bake at 180°C, check after 20 minutes.
