For The Filling: 1 cup (100 grams) almond meal

2 tablespoons (25 grams) Fox and Son Funnel Cake Flour

1/4 teaspoon (1 gram) salt

1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated white sugar

7 tablespoons (100 grams) unsalted butter

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract

For the Fruit:

Approximately 3-4 peaches, pears, or apples, sliced 1/4 inch thick and peeled.

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Optional to finish:

Turbinado sugar or cinnamon sugar to sprinkle on top

1/2 jar apricot preserves + 1 Tablespoon water to make the fruit appear shiny.

Add 1 egg yolk and a couple sprinkles of cold water, followed by the next yolk and more water until the dough just comes together. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 mins. STEP 2 Heat oven to 400'F. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until big enough to line a 9-inch tart tin.



Place the sheet of dough into the tart pan and press into place. If you're not using a non-stick tart pan, put a small layer of butter or pan spray on the surface of the pan before pressing the dough into place.



If the dough rips, simply patch it up with small pieces left over.



Place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes and prick a few holes using a fork.


Bake for 10 mins to preset the crust. It should be lightly golden brown. Cool slightly before moving onto step 3.




STEP 3 While the tart crust cools, make the filling. Whisk the sugar and butter together until you get a pale paste.




Beat in the eggs and add the vanilla extract.



and finally add the almond flour and the Fox and Son funnel cake mix. Wisk together.






Spread evenly onto the cooled tart shell.



In a separate bowl, toss apples, peaches or pears with the cinnamon, sugar, ground ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Arrange the fruit slices across the top in a circular pattern. (The fruit pictured has not been tossed in spices per the request of the person who requested it).





Bake at 375' for 25-35 mins until golden and almond filling appears set. Baking time may vary. When cool, brush apricot preserve or honey across the top, or sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
