Berry Almond Tarts

The moment I saw this Delicious Berry Tart in Bakedbree I know I will be going to make them.
And if you are planning to make this go to Bree's blog and check the beautiful pictures of the tart and also the beautiful step by step pictorials.

But then that time the berries were just not in full season and they were still a tad expensive, so I waited till they were fully in season then I know they will be cheaper.
And anyway I am a sucker for anything frangipane, and this one resembled like that and I knew I would make it sooner or later.

Of course when I served the tarts, for hubby I served with chipped cream as he loves to have it with fruit tarts.
We loved the tarts and I am sure I will be making them again as it is so easy to make plust they are so good.
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons (130g) butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 cups berries
  • Method:
  • Put the butter, sugar, zests, and vanilla bean in the bowl of an electric mixer. Cream for 6 to 8 minutes or until light and fluffy, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.

  • Whisk together almond meal, flour, and baking powder. Set aside. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Take the bowl off of the mixer and fold in the almonds
  • Scoop the batter with an ice cream scoop into 6 paper tart pans or an 11-inch fluted tart pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Add the berries and gently press into batter.

  • Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. (If you bake in a large tart pan, it will be closer to 45 minutes. (Mine was baked in 25 minutes. So i thing it depend on your oven and your tart shape)

I like the idea of these being crustless. And then you could almost make them like cakes or any other form
