Christmas mince pie frangipane tart
December 14, 2011 in Uncategorized
I adore mince pies and decided to make a full blown tart version after tasting the frangipane mince pies at the Avondale wine pairing with Sonia Cabano. I simply fell in love with the flavour combinations and the almondy frangipane mix makes a perfect topping for a mince pie.
I used the Gordon Ramsey sweet pastry recipe passed onto me by my friend Lori as its her all time favourite pastry base. I enjoy it too as you make it in a food processor so I find this very unfussy and easy.
I topped the tart with flaked almonds which add texture and almond flavour.
