One of my favorite flavors is Almond. The flavor can be simple or complex depending on how it is used. This month, for Avid Bakers Challenge, we used it in some lovely little tarts. The crust and the filling both had almond flavors and ground almonds. And it was just right.


Topped with slices of peach and drizzled with a simple sugar/milk glaze it was a perfect dessert. Simple, but possibly quite elegant. The only change I made in the recipe from King Arthur Flour was to drizzle the glaze over the peaches rather than place the peaches over the glaze spread on the tart. It cut down some on the sweetness, but not the flavor. I made 1/2 of the rcipe and ended up with 3 well filled tarts.

You can find the recipe on the KAF site. After you check out the recipe, check out the tarts from the other ABC members.
