Little Frangipane Tarts Recipe

We're loving Jamie Oliver at our house!! J and I have been watching his 'Food Revolution' show & J continues to cook his way through '30 Minute Meals' Yum Yum.

*He chooses what he wants to make and writes his ingredient list ready for my Friday shop.
{Excuse the laundry in the background }

Last weekend he made pg 30: 
'Pregnant Jool's Pasta, Crunchy chicory & watercress salad and Little Frangipane Tarts'
Gosh we yum and immm-ed all the way through it :)))

& here: the Frangipane Tarts, I just had to share...


6 small deep shortcrust pastry cases (Our J made his own pastry!)
1 egg
100g ground almonds
100g butter
90g golden caster sugar
1 orange
1 tablespoon vanilla paste or extract
½ a 350g jar of good-quality raspberry jam
1 x 250g tub of crème fraîche, to serve

Put the 6 pastry cases on a baking tray.

Make the frangipane mixture by cracking the egg into a bowl & adding the almonds, butter & caster sugar. Grate over the zest of ½ an orange & add 1 tablespoon of vanilla.
Then mix everything together.

Spoon a small teaspoon of jam into each pastry base. Top with a heaped teaspoon of frangipane, add another small teaspoon of jam, then finally another heaped teaspoon of frangipane.

Put the tray in the oven on the middle shelf for 18 minutes until golden and serve warm, with a dollop of crème fraîche on the side
