Recipe by Manami
A lovely dessert tart! I used Pepperidge Farm for the Puffed Pastry tart, another two recipes for the filling and Dancer's Chocolate Almond Sauce #5331 for the sauce on top. It made for a fantastic combination!

This was awesome, guests asked to take some home. I used 1/2 tsp almond extract instead of Amaretto, which turned out to be a good amount. I ended up cooking on a cookie sheet since I didn't have a tart pan and it still worked fine, I just trimmed the sheets to be somewhat circular. Next time I'll try putting the chocolate sauce on top.
