My week is finally winding down. With just little bits of business left to tie up, I’ve managed to squeeze in some time to write about these lovely bars. These bars, as you might have guessed, is based on the English Bakewell Tarts, which is something I have yet to try. (If anybody knows a good recipe for the tarts, please do link away!) I actually made this quite some time ago but had planned to share it only after trying the tarts. Unfortunately I haven’t had the chance to make them, but it would be such a shame to keep these bars to myself for so long.
These bars are made up of layers upon layers of yum: a buttery crust at the bottom, some sweet jam in the middle, a lovely frangipane on top of that, and finally a nice sprinkling of more almonds to enhance the lovely almond scent and flavour. This is a fantastic almond treat, sweetened mostly by a layer of jam. My love for almonds is actually a fairly recent thing. I did not use to like them, but I have always loved the scent of them. Thankfully tastes change, because I have much almond-consumption to catch up to.
