Frangipane Tart is a classic pastry with the filling made with fruits and almond.
Frangipane is essentially the word for the almond filling which can be used in cakes, pastries and more often than not in a tart. So this Frangipane tart has the goodness of fruits and almonds in it!
I first made this years ago,after seeing it in what else, but Masterchef Australia and since then it is a regular feature in my parties and gifts. There are people who call me and say lets meet I am craving the Frangipane Tart.
Apparently, this tart is said to have originated in the 1600s and was intended to be a custard with a scent of almonds. But it morphed into an almond and butter filling of what we have today. Since the these tarts are really rich and on the heavier side, they are usually made smaller!
