Super easy to make last minute

This classic French pastry is super easy to make last minute or even when sudden guests have already arrived! The combination of a crispy puff pastry bottom and a tasty but simple frangipane cuts right into the sweetness of the plums, creating a treat that is welcome any time of day.

Swap the Mirabel plums for other (stone) fruit you prefer; green apples works really well too. I usually make my own puff pastry, because it freezes well so you can prepare in advance, but it just depends on how picky you are and store bought or frozen might work for you as well. Same goes for the almonds: I like to roast and ground almonds myself, but if you have access to prepacked and prefer that, it obviously will work too.

Fruit & Almond pastry

Super easy to make last minute
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • Puff pastry to cover the mold
  • Baking parchment (optional)
  • Butter to prepare the mold
  • 150 grams of ground almonds
  • 75 – 100 grams of bio cane sugar (choose to taste)
  • 60 grams of unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 2 whole eggs
  • Enough fruit to cover the tart.


  1. Preheat the oven, 220 C / 428F or if you have a fan oven 200 C / 392 F
  2. Line your mold with baking parchment and grease with butter
  3. Line your mold with puff pastry and pierce holes with a fork in it
  4. Mix the ground almonds with the cane sugar, add the butter and the two eggs and mix until fluffy. Use a stand mixer if you prefer, but not necessary. Cover the puff pastry with a gentle layer of this paste.
  5. Wash the fruit thoroughly and cut them to preferred size, removing the pits..
  6. Place fruit on the almond paste, if at all possible in a graceful pattern
  7. If you like your tart extra sweet, you can sprinkle some cane sugar over the Mirabel plums
  8. Fold the pastry over the edge to cover some of the filling
  9. Place in the middle of the preheated oven and bake for around 25 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.

Looks and sounds gorgeous, will definitely make this!

Trying to make ones life sustainable is more than a personal choice and almost automatically leads to a multitude of decisions you have never even thought of before. On this website we share what works for us, or woefully no longer works, obviously without claiming the same for you.

We hope that our journey towards a supplementary comprehensive celebration of nature’s beauty might just clear a pathway forward for you too, perhaps challenges a revealing reconsideration, or simply provides for an equally indispensable diversion.

Can we change the world through food? We believe we can and we support Slow Food, a global movement of local communities and activists across more than 160 countries. Together we defend cultural and biological diversity, promote food education and the transfer of traditional knowledge and skills.
