Pear and Almond Cream Tart Pinterest

Pear and almond cream tart (or frangipane) is a classic French tart made with fresh pears and a delicious almond cream, it’s not only gorgeous but also scrumptious, quick to make also!

I can’t tell you how much we love this pear and almond cream tart in my home, it never lasts more than a few hours!

This time I used Bartlett pears, they were juicy, soft and so flavorful. You can use Anjou or Bosc pears depending on what’s in store and how ripe they are.

This tart is made of a layer of almond cream and halved and cored pears arranged in a pattern. While baking the almond cream rises around the pears, once it’s golden and the pears are soft and cooked through, about 35 to 40 minutes, it’s time to take it out of the oven.

Almond cream is made in a jiffy simply by adding all the ingredients into a medium bowl and stirring them together with a spatula. Almond meal can usually be found in the baking section of any supermarket, if you can’t find it you can simply process finely the same amount of blanched and peeled almonds.

I would recommend weighing your ingredients as the almond cream is made of equal weight butter/sugar/almond meal. Also, I added pure vanilla extract but you could add cinnamon powder or almond extract instead.

As always, work with a very cold pastry dough, keep it cold until ready to bake.

I don't know what I like most about your delicious pear and almond tart: the pears, the delicious looking top or the whole thing together! Christopher will love this tart as he's a pear fanatic. This looks so good!

Pear and almond is such a classic combination and I love any type of frangipane tart too so this sounds perfect for me!

Oh my what a wonderful looking tart, and frangipane is one of the few things that make me go for dessert or a sweet treat over savoury!

I really enjoy tarts with pears. In fact, I should probably say desserts with pears because pears make pretty much anything special. And your tart is a great example – it is beautiful and I am sure it tastes incredible!
