How To Make Peach Frangipane Puff Pastry Tarts
Sweet and perfect for summer, these puff pastry tarts are baked with fresh peach slices and creamy frangipane, a rich almond-flavored custard.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
On a lightly floured work surface, unfold the puff pastry. Lightly roll it with a rolling pin to even it out if there are any gaps or wrinkles. Transfer the dough to the parchment-lined baking sheet.
With a pizza cutter or knife, cut the dough into 9 pieces to make four-inch squares or similar size rectangles. The exact size depends upon the original shape of the dough.
Spread them apart on the baking sheet. Refrigerate while making the filling.
In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse the almond flour, sugar, and salt for a few seconds to mix. Add the butter pieces and pulse until the butter is incorporated with no large visible pieces.
Add the egg, all-purpose flour, amaretto (or almond extract), and vanilla and process until the frangipane is smooth. It should have the consistency of natural almond butter, thick but runny.
On each square of pastry, spoon about 1 tablespoon of the frangipane. It will spread out naturally on the pastry, and even further once the peaches are added. If some spills over the edges, that’s fine.
If the frangipane doesn’t spread, feel free to push it around the tart with the back of a spoon. There may be frangipane left over, depending on the size of the pastry squares.
Set 5 to 6 wedges of fruit on top of each tart. Sprinkle each with the turbinado sugar.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the peaches are soft and the frangipane and pastry are golden.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat the jelly or jam and water for 30 seconds, or until liquefied. Brush the warm glaze over the peaches.
Serve the tarts on the same day that they are made.
