Little Pecan Frangipane Tarts
I am so glad that there are food bloggers, all around the world, who are willing to share their fabulous recipes and expertise. After surfing my way around the blogs, I go to bed dreaming of pastries, cakes and desserts!
One site I like to visit is Cannelle Et Vanille, a mouthwatering food blog by a gifted Spanish pastry chef, Aran. I saw her mini peach and pistachio frangipane tarts and, for once, I thought - I could make those - they not only look beautiful, they seem fairly easy too.
So here is my version of the tarts. I only murdered your recipe a little Aran, replacing the pistachios in the frangipane with roasted pecans, and I used lemon zest in the Sable Breton.
The verdict? Crisp bottom, soft melting frangipane and absolutely delicious with the mascarpone cream and summer fruits.
