I love almond flavor, and I love tarts. I was recently looking at David Lebovitz's blog, and came across a recipe he had for an Almond Tart. The recipe comes from Chez Panisse, and let me tell you, you've got to make this. Rather than type the recipe, I'm linking to David's blog entry about this recipe. He gives a lot of tips. The recipe sounds rather fussy, but is actually very easy to make. And the results are to die for! Buttery flaky crust, chewy, caramel almond filling....
I served this with a scoop of Turron Ice Cream that was from David's book The Perfect Scoop. The tart is very rich, and would be good on its own, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some lightly whipped cream.
This is one recipe that I will be making many times in the future.
