Tartine’s frangipane tart
July 14, 2010 § 6 Comments
When Drew and I were on our honeymoon in San Francisco, our last stop before we left the city was at Tartine Bakery. I had read good things online when I was researching where to eat in such a foodie town so I had high expectations. I can honestly say that Tartine exceeded everything I could have expected. We ordered the morning bun, a slice of quiche, a couple of coffees, and a mini frangipane tart. While all of it was divine, the tart was the best of all. It was moist, sweet, buttery, flaky, and although rich, I still felt like I could eat a whole one by myself. After we came back home, I was on a quest to make it and was so excited when I saw that the people behind Tartine had written a cookbook and it had the tart recipe! This is the 2nd recipe I’ve made from the book and like the lemon bars, I think I can call this one a success :)
*if you want the recipe, leave me a comment and I will share but if you really like baking, then I would highly recommend getting this cookbook as it is really good and it helps to support people who make delicious things.
** edit** So turns out the recipe is already posted online by the owners of the bakery, you can find it here.
