    I love this almond filling and use it in a lot of my tarts, before the creme patisserie layer. It is so good.

      It hardly seems fair to rate this, since I really only used the Frangipane filling (I used my own Pate Brisee and I filled it with carmelized apples for extra flavor). But it was incredible, simple to make, absolutely delicious! It's a keeper for sure.
