Flaked almond tart


Flaked almond tart
This almond tart is an American-inspired version of the classic dessert. This one leaves out the almond cream or frangipane and uses flaked almonds instead. These are toasted, then mixed with cream and sugar.

There's no point denying it, this is a rich dessert...
