Gluten free apple frangipane tart

Yesterday I share with you the tray I made for 91 magazine, so today I am sharing with you the Gluten free apple frangipane tart that I served on my new tray...

A shortcrust pastry case filled with frangipane and slices of apple make a great combination of taste and texture.
