Piles of juicy ripe plums are layered on top of soft almond frangipane and encased with buttery-sweet pastry. You don’t even need to roll it out! The big pastry sausage is cut into slices that layer the bottom and sides of my flan dish. Then that pastry is squished down using your hands until all the gaps are covered. This creates a slightly rustic feel to the tart that I love! It’s perfectly portable and delicious served cold – so it’s great for picnics. It’s also amazing served slightly warm with a good drizzle of cream.
