I created a version of this delicious Frangipane apple tart for a client a while ago–that version had shop bought vegan puff pastry and was fantastic but I wanted to make another version with my lovely nutty tart crust.

Today I added some gorgeous blitzed pecans to the crust which worked perfectly and added a sweet nutty flavour.

Frangipane is one of my favourite flavours–I adore sweet almond desserts. And this one is even better with the addition to apples and that amazing crust.
You can make the crust gluten-free if you’d prefer by using gluten-free flour.

I like to serve warm with some cold and creamy coconut yogurt–absolutely delicious!

Enjoy, love Niki xxx
