Gluten-Free French Grape Tart

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.

    Personally I love grape. So when I see this recipe then then I try it with full of interest. It’s so yummy food. But Is there any alternative of sea salt?

      Iva,
      Kosher salt, or half the amount of table salt.
      xo,
