Almond Creme (Frangipane) Recipe

This frangipane filling recipe came from our friend and Pastry Chef, Jesse. Use this almond creme filling when making almond danish, croissant, or fruit/almond tarts. This almond creme filling would go under the tart's fresh fruit topping before baking.


1. With paddle attachments, mix almond paste and sugar at low speed until evenly mixed.

2. Mix in fat and flour until smooth.

3. Beat in eggs, a little at a time, until smooth.
