Fig and Frangipane Tart


My mom got a huge box of fresh figs from Pune when she came down to Bangalore..am not really a big fan of figs but she is..so I thought I will tart to make a tart for her…I had some dough left from the chocolate tart..

I came across many recipes online with frangipane…I had really no clue what is was and how it will come out but I decided to give it a go..Don’t go by the name really it’s just a paste of almonds in butter,egg and sugar..

Just a layer of this below the figs does wonders to the recipe. I doubt frangipane would really go this well with anything other than figs..The earthiness of the figs and the sweetness of almonds just make it devour-able(if that’s even a word!!)

What I finally took out of the oven after baking was amazingly delicious and fig-frangipane make an amazing combination. I think without the other they are pretty ok to taste..But together they form a brilliant dish!!

You can find the pastry recipe from chocolate tart post
