Mince Pie Frangipane Tart

No Comments Baking and Tarts / Pies

Leftover mincemeat from Christmas and sick of mince pies? This tart has a frangipane topping so it’s like a cross between a Bakewell tart and mince pie.


One thing I’ve learned when making any kind of bar/slice/tart which has a filling with a layer of something else on top is that you can never have too much filling (mots recently with the Manchester Tart I made, which I should have used more jam for). A batch of 12 mince pies used around 400g of mincemeat; both of these tarts used around 300g in total but there was plenty of room for more filling. The frangipane topping is chunky enough to hold the flavour of the almonds on it’s own, so you can load the base with as much mince meat as you have.
