How to make it

  • Place 1/4 cup water in freezer (to start the pate brisee)
  • Prep baking pan. ( I used a pizza pan, and lined it with aluminum foil)
  • Preheat oven 400 degrees Farhenheit, middle shelf in oven.
  • While the prepared crust dough is chilling, put together the frangipane:
  • Electric mixer ( I used food processor with metal Blade) combine the almond paste and 1/4 cup sugar. Add the butter(2 oz) and the rum, and beat it in . Lastly, throw the egg into the mixture, and beat until smooth.
  • Now, go get the pastry, smear the frangipane all over, leaving a 2 inch border on the outside rim. Place the fruit anyway you like, mine is more peasanty/ mosaic ally. fold the border of the pastry up toward the center , making an edge all around, pleating the dough a bit as necessary. (this part is very forgiving. the frangipane drooled over the side before I had pulled up the edges. I just pulled the pastry up, and it all turned out beautifully. and the foil saved the day!! Husbands birthday!! I am guessing about the time to bake. When it is puffy and a light brown crust take it out and onto a cooling rack. Serve room temp.

    This sounds really good. One could use frozen puff pastry in a pinch.
