{mixed berry frangipane tartlets}

Sometimes I just feel like baking. Not only to indulge in some yummy treats (well, okay that's a big part of it..), but also to experiment and try new things. It doesn't work out every time (who wants to see the failed attempts tough?! ;) )..

..but it did with these yummies: {mixed berry frangipane tartlets}

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 5 eggs
  • mixed berries
  • 3 tbsp. apricot jam

Instructions

  1. To make the pastry, sift the flour onto a work surface or large bowl and make a well in the center.

  3. Add the sugar to the butter and mix.
  4. Add the eggs to the butter and mix together.
  5. Gradually incorporate the flour, flicking it onto the mixture, then crop through until you have a rough dough.
  6. Bring together and knead a few times until smooth.
  7. Roll into a ball, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  8. To make the frangipane, beat the butter until soft.
  9. Add the powdered sugar, almonds and flour and beat well.
  10. Add the egg gradually, beating well.
  11. Put in a clean bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
  12. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  13. Roll out the pastry to 2mm thick and use to line the tartlet pans.
  14. Put the frangipane in a piping bag and pipe into the tartlet pans.
  15. Put the pans on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.
  16. Cool slightly on a wire rack, then arrange berries on top.
  17. Melt the jam with 1 teaspoon water, sieve out any lumps and brush over the berries.

    I love frangipane! Yummy yummy. I really love almond-flavored anything, though! I hope we’re going to have some nice berries this year. I picked up a punnet of locally-grown blackberries a couple of days ago and they’re so sweet and fragrant.

    That’s so mouth-watering. It’s making me want to go to the kitchen and create something sweet. How much time do you need to come up with that? I wonder if I could try that on weekends for lunch’s dessert.

    Just fantastic – and great photos

    I found this through Thriving on Thursdays. I have linked in a corned beef hash cakes recipe using corned beef leftovers. I selected the right picture but the linky thing went crazy, so you will have to click through to see the picture. Have a great week.
