Grape Frangipane Tart

Yield: 10 servings.

one tart pastry, single crust for 10" tart, par-baked

3½ cups red or black seedless California grapes

2 oz. almond paste

1 large egg

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup butter

2 Tbsp. flour

pinch of salt

as needed, confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 10" tart pan with pastry. Arrange grapes snugly in decorative rings in pastry. In an electric mixer, combine almond paste, egg, sugar, butter, flour and salt until smooth, to create frangipane. Carefully spread over arranged grapes and bake for 35 minutes, until tart is golden brown and cooked through. If using a convection oven, bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. When tart is cool, remove from pan and dust with confectioner's sugar.
