Dessert Recipes Tasty Treats

Pear & Cinnamon Frangipane Tartlets

DSC_0098 copy
Late last week, my family came over in celebration on my moms birthday. It was my very first time planning a legitimate, grown-up, sit down dinner party for a decent number of people and I’m happy to say that it went off without a hitch. Though the main course is naturally important, if you ask me, dessert is always the star of the show, and with that the pressure was on. I wanted to present something classic and sophisticated, preferably individually portioned for quick and easy delivery and (even quicker clean up). In came this recipe for pear and cinnamon frangipane tartlets. The results were as delicious as they are beautiful, and it’s safe to say that my mom was one very happy lady.

    Every time you do a recipe post, I swoon over your wooden dining table. Seriously, is it not the most beautiful AND perfect-for-photos piece of furniture?

    These are stunning! I made these with marzipan for a christmas party before leaving St. Andrews for break. Perfect winter treats.
