Figs and frangipane little tarts (tartas de higos y crema de almendras)




Here we are at that time when summer ends and autumn begin (really my favorite) and the favorite fruit at this time are: figs.
I love them.  Honestly I bought figs  several times until I could leave some to make the recipe. 
In any case it can be prepared with other fruits ( Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries ), only I love figs and the season is so short
Is a small tartlet with a frangipane cream and figs.
Really delicious.
Love for all of you and thanks by coming!

to all my friends and lovely people that stopping by here in my blog.

Some days ago I had a terrible fall in my garden.
And I have a fissure bone in my right shoulder, so by the moment only I make some little things.
I write and eat with my left arm but is not easy and still I have a lot of pain.

Send me prayers and good vibes because I hope not to have  a shoulder surgery.
send you hugs and love and dont forget me.

xoxo

 130 grams almond meal
3 1/2 tablespoon all purpose flour

Press the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic. Put in fridge about 1 hour .

Preheat oven to 180° c (375° F) , Place the dough on a surface lightly dusted with some all purpose flour and roll out with a rolling pin. If you need add more flour to roll.
Grease 6 tartlet tin or ceramic pie dish . Line with the pastry. 
If you have some problem with the dough just press the pastry with yours fingers. Put the tins or ceramic dishes in the fridge again while you preparing the filling.

Frangipane filling

Place the butter and caster sugar in a food processor and whiz to combine . Add the egg and yolk, the almond meal, the grated orange rind, all purpose flour and orange juice, then combine all.
Spoon 1 teaspoon of apricot jam over the base of the tart  shells. Evenly divide  the frangipane filling between the tarts and gently spoon over the jam. 
Place 2 or 3 fig slices onto the frangipane filling.
Place the tartlets onto a baking sheet  and place on the middle shelf of the oven.

Bake at 180°c /375 °F for about 30 minuts  or until the frangipane fillinghas slightly puffed and is golden brown.
The baking time will depend on your oven so start cheking after 20 minutes.
Remove the tray from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. You can glaze the tartlets with some warmed  strained apricot jam.
