Apple Almond Galette

easy apple dessert

I love the combination of almond with fruit so when I came across this relatively easy apple dessert recipe that included almond paste I was excited to try it.  The recipe came from a magazine called Family Favorites Cookbook and it’s easy to see why it was included.

Similar to an apple almond tart – this recipe is easier because it is free-form (no fitting into a tart pan).

FYI: I omitted the giner and replace it with 1 tsp. cinnamon.

Peach Blueberry Tart Recipe – Divine!

blueberry peach pie

This incredibly delicious peach blueberry tart has fast become one of my favorite dessert recipes!  You can use frozen fruit or fresh so that it can be made and shared at any time of the year.  If using frozen, do make sure you thaw the fruit prior to putting together.  The first time I made it I overlooked the directions that said to use ‘thawed’ and although still delicious, the fruit needed a bit more cooking.

This recipe and photo comes from the Oct/Nov. 1012 issue of Taste of Home (mine looks almost as good as theirs!).  Easier than a peach blueberry pie because you simply pat the crust into the tart pan, it is every bit as good.
