Money doesn’t grown on trees – but fresh, juicy peaches do! When the peach season is in swing, I break out this Peach Raspberry Pie Recipe and add it to the menu at the bakery.

How to Make an Apple Walnut Frangipane Tart

This tart is almost as stunning as it is delicious! It contains the complementary flavors of apples and walnuts – with the walnuts starring in the frangipane base. What is frangipane? Most commonly it is a baked pastry cream made with finely ground almonds, eggs, butter and various flavorings. If you have ever had a Bakewell tart – you have had frangipane. This recipe replaces the almonds with walnuts since they are the perfect pairing with apples.
