Amaretto Soaked Raspberry and Frangipane Tart
The thought of making pastry used to spark the fear within me. Making pastry can be so overwhelming and, for that reason, I avoided it in my baking for such a long time.
Luckily, love conquers hate and, in the end, my love for tarts and pies was just too strong - so I finally decided to face up to my fears.
My favourite pastry to work with is pate sucrée and, honestly, you really can’t go wrong with the recipe - it’s totally fool proof.
The key is making sure it’s had time to chill before working with it - if not, it’ll be nightmare to roll out. If you’re in a hurry, you can always pop in in the freezer for 30 minutes instead of the fridge.
For me, the amaretto-soaked raspberry frangipane steals this show - it’s the perfect pudding for a summer evening; especially when served warm with a healthy scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream.
