Grape Frangipane Tart

Here's a recipe for a holiday table triumph: a dessert that's refreshing, elegant and rich, yet not heavy or overly sweet. The Grape Frangipane Tart looks like a jewel and tastes like a dream with juicy grapes and the complementary flavour of almonds. Begin with your favourite tart dough recipe or purchase the best tart shell you can buy ready-made from your grocer's freezer selection. Whipped cream is the perfect topping.


  • 1 tart pastry, single crust for 10-inch tart
  • 3 1/2 cups red or black seedless California grapes
  • 2 oz. almond paste
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Pinch salt
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.Line a 10-inch tart pan with pastry.
  2. Arrange grapes snugly in decorative rings in pastry.
  3. In an electric mixer combine almond paste, egg, sugar, butter, flour, and salt until smooth to create frangipane.
  4. Carefully spread over arranged grapes and bake for 35 minutes, until the tart is golden brown and cooked through. If using a convection oven, bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.
  5. When tart is cool, remove from pan and dust with confectioners' sugar.
