Gluten free blackberry frangipane tarts

The lovely peeps at Tala have been very generous to me and recently sent me some Non-stick loose bottomed tartlet tins and baking beans. Finally I would be able to use the pretty floral tart wrappers I bought in Oslo at the beginning of the year! I wanted to make tarts that would suit the wrappers so I decided on some blackberry frangipane filled tarts dusted in icing sugar...

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

Gluten Free

4 Individual tarts

Method

Blackberry frangipane tarts

  1. Preheat oven to 180C (160c fan) / 355F

  2. Lightly grease the pie tins

  3. Roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface to about 8mm thick

  4. Lightly press the pastry into the tins, (I use the end of a teaspoon to get a neat fluted edge) and trim.

  5. Lightly prick the base of the tarts

  6. Line pastry with greaseproof paper and fill with baking beans

  7. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes

  8. Remove paper and beans.

  9. Lightly brush the tarts with some of the beaten egg.

  10. Return to the oven for a further five minutes

  11. Cream the butter and sugar using a food mixer fitted with a paddle

  12. Gradually mix in the ground almonds, beaten eggs, lemon zest and Amaretto till well blended

  13. Spoon frangipane mix into baked tarts

  14. Push blackberries neatly into frangipane

  15. Bake for about 30-35 mins until lightly golden and they spring back lightly when touched.

  16. Leave in tins on a wire rack to completely cool

To decorate

  1. Place tarts in cake cases

  2. Lightly dust with icing sugar
