Vanilla Fig Tart Frangipane

Let me begin with this is not my recipe.  I wanted to know if it was as good as it sounded. Indeed, it is!  With the exception of using an almond soy milk wash on the pastry, I didn't change one thing.  Below, I share the ingredients and a link to the original recipe.  

The Recipe

Frangipane ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of whole almonds

  • 1/3 cup of sugar

  • butter

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 vanilla bean*

The frangipane (an almond filling) is superb, easy and quick to make using a food processor. 


Vanilla beans are expensive but well worth the cost.  You can also purchase vanilla paste.  

Ready now to try this fig frangipane?  I found the complete recipe on Purple Foodie by SHAHEEN PEERBHAI, a chief based in London, England.

For the pastry dough, I used a super recipe by Chez Pim's "One Pie Dough To Rule Them All."  As for me, no more store bought pie dough!  I have found my pie-dough love!  

Yes, I'm guilty, I treated myself to a piece before sharing with anyone else!  Try it with a dollop of whip cream and a hot cup of coffee.


Check it out.  Let me know if you try it --and what you think!
