Gluten Free French Grape Tart Recipe
A French tart is not an exceptionally flirty Parisian woman, but a delectable pastry often filled with almond paste and topped with fruit.
Since France is so well known for wine, I decided to use grapes to top this particular tart. And what a fabulous combo, if I do say so myself. The grapes add the perfect balance of sweet and, well … tart.
This Gluten Free French Grape Tart Recipe is fun and flirty with just a bit of attitude that teases your taste buds, so maybe that first definition is not so far off. In any case, it’s a lovely pastry, perfect for an elegant dessert or afternoon tea party.
Recipe Notes: You can use a pie crust mix or make your own, look at this recipe here for Perfect Pie Crust. Make sure your almond paste is in fact gluten free – not all are. I used Wholesome! organic sugar and powdered sugar in this recipe and, as always, make sure to use only pure extracts.
- Gluten free non-stick cooking spray
- 1 recipe perfect pie crust
- 2 ounces gluten free almond paste
- 1 large egg
- ¼ cup Wholesome! organic sugar
- ¼ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons gluten free all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon pure almond extract
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
- 3 cups red seedless grapes
- Powdered sugar for dusting
Spray a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom with cooking spray. Line the tart pan with the pie crust.
Put the almond paste in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until smooth. Add the egg, sugar, butter, flour, vanilla and almond extracts, and salt. Beat on medium-high speed until smooth. Scrape the mixture into the prepared tart pan. Top with the grapes and bake for 30 -35 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool in the pan. Remove the outer ring, dust with powdered sugar, and serve.
