Frangipane Fruitmince Tarts

To make Frangipane Fruitmince Tarts all you need, naturally enough is a frangipane mixture!

Frangipane Fruitmince Tarts
[Makes 24 tarts]

80 grams butter, softened
80 grams caster sugar
2 eggs
80 grams almond meal

Follow the instructions for making the Traditional Fruitmince Tarts but you don't need to cut out any stars - the frangipane takes its place.

To make the Frangipane:

Place the butter and sugar into a bowl and beat using an electric mixer until creamy. Beat the eggs in, one at a time - make sure the egg is fully amalgamated before adding the second egg.

Stir in the almond meal.

Spoon the filling into each tart - try not to overfill as the frangipane will rise when cooked.

Cook in a preheated 180°C/350°F oven until golden - about 15-25 minutes.

  1. Haalo, these look fantastic - you have magic hands, I have to say!

    I wish I had been the lucky person who bit into these delicious tarts. :D

  2. Thanks Patricia - I think my hands are too warm for pastry making, my mother really has the magic hands when it comes to pastry. It took a few takes to get just the right bite ;)

    Thanks Sher - the frangipane just works so well, it's my favourite.

  3. Haalo, this is a nice alternative to the traditional pastry tops.
    I love frangipane.
    I will definitely try this.
    Thanks again for all your gorgeous recipes.


  5. Thanks Cakebaker for taking the time to try out the recipes - I'm so happy that you've enjoyed them. Hopefully the frangipane topping will become one of your favourites too!

    Thanks Nidhi!

  6. Haalo, I have a batch of freshly made fruitmince sitting in the fridge ready to make these delicious little pies.

    Can't wait to try your frangipane topping.

  7. Yum CB! Hope you like the tarts, look forward to finding out how they turned out for you.

  8. Hi Haalo,
    I thought I'd let you know how my frangipane turned.
    It was so very easy to make and bake.
    I took a dozen to my parents this morning for morning tea and they just loved them.

    I will include some in a couple of orders due for Sunday, just as a thank for the orders.

    Another hit:):)

    Thanks again.

  9. Hi CB - that's great news! Glad to know that they were enjoyed and turned out so well for you!
