Apple Frangipane Galettes

I have a 5-year old little girl at home, which means we read a whole lot of Fancy Nancy. If you haven’t heard of Fancy Nancy it’s actually a fun series. Nancy is an imaginative, flamboyant girl who relishes the fancier things in life. For her, apple tarts with almond filling taste way better if they have a fancy name like Apple Frangipane Galettes (oooh la la)!.

I’ll admit, I had no idea what “frangipane” was until I read through the recipe I found on the back of the Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour bag. In fact, I still wasn’t entirely sure, as there was nothing called “frangipane” in the ingredients list. It turns out that it was just the name of the filling for these simply incredible puff pastry galettes – almond meal, mixed with butter, sugar, flour and eggs.

They may look and sound a little fancy, but these Apple Frangipane Galettes are actually very easy to layer together. And, with fresh autumn apples, they are positively delectable (that’s fancy for super delicious)!

    How fancy! But also very approachable! I will use this at thanksgiving for an alternate dessert if someone does not want pie. Looks like it may also be good cool as a sweet breakfast treat.

    I’ve made this so many times now, it’s my go-to dessert. We love it. For gifts I make in a long rectangular tart pan. Friends can’t get over how delicious it is and assume it’s difficult to make. I just let them think what they want! Thanks for sharing.
