Have made these frangipane tarts for every occasion. It is easy and fast.
There is the recipe:
6 small deep shortcrust pastry cases
100g ground almonds
90g golden caster sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla paste or extract
1/2 a 350g jar of good-quality jam (raspberry, strawberry, orange, ...)
Put the 6 pastry cases on a baking tray.
Make a frangipane mixture by cracking the egg into a mixing bowl and adding 100g of almonds, 100g of butter and 90g of golden caster sugar. Grate over the zest of ½ an orange and add 1 tablespoon of vanilla paste or extract. Use a spoon to mix everything together.
Spoon a small teaspoon of jam into each pastry base.
Top with a heaped teaspoon of frangipane, add another small teaspoon of jam, then finally another heaped teaspoon of frangipane.
Put the tray in the oven on the middle shelf and set the timer for 18 minutes exactly.
