This stone fruit almond tart has a gluten-free almond crust with a honey frangipane filling and topped with stone fruit rosettes to make a beautiful and delicious dessert!
I seem to be a late arrival to most trends. Back when boot-cut jeans became popular, I was still sporting the tapered look. I finally switched over to boot-cut, but of course, everyone else had moved on to skinny jeans. Story.of.my.life. 🙈
Well, it wouldn’t be classic me if I wasn’t late to yet another trend—the food roses. I’ve only recently started seen them on Instagram from my friend, Christine, and I thought it would be cool to make a tart filled with fruit roses! Apparently that idea has been thought of already…a lot! 😂
What sets this tart apart from others is the fact that it’s free of gluten, dairy, and refined sugar! It also has an assortment of mixed stone fruits which makes it beautifully vibrant and colorful!
I’m not going to lie, making the fruit flowers takes time and patience…and lots of it! The softer fruits, like the nectarines and plums, were much easier to work with, while the crispy, firm peaches were more difficult because the “petals” don’t want to bend. Really thin slices work much better. I had to re-roll some of them a few times, but if you can get it to look rose-ish, you can easily add petals and tweak it a bit once you set it inside of the tart filling.
When I finally finished the fruit roses, the tart was a sight to behold. Gorgeous shades of red, orange, yellow, purple, and magenta swirls filled the pan. I almost didn’t want to bake it since fruit and veggies usually loose their color after baking.
I was so happy when I opened the oven and saw that the fruit actually kept much of its color after baking. I also loved how each slice was beautiful and unique. This may be a dessert that takes some extra effort, but it’s definitely worth it in my opinion! It’s delicious, made with wholesome ingredients, and a show-stopper—a win-win-win!
