For the pastry:

  • 175 g plain flour
  • 75 g cold butter
  • 25 g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp water

For the frangipane filling:

  • 75 g butter softened
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 75 g ground almonds plus extra for sprinkling (optional, see tip below)
  • ½ tsp almond extract

To decorate:

  • 2 conference pears
  • 2 red apples


  1. Preheat your oven to 190°C. Grease a 28cm (11in) round, loose-bottomed fluted tart tin (3-4cm deep). 

  2. Place the flour and butter in the mixing bowl and pulse until crumbly 1 Sec. / Turbo / 4x

  3. Add the sugar, eggs and ½-1 teaspoon water until the dough just holds together on setting 40 Sec. / Speed 4.

  4. Transfer the pastry onto a floured surface and roll as thinly as possible (1-2mm thick) then use to line the prepare tin, making a small lip around the top. Prick the base of the pastry all over with a fork.

  5. For the filling, place the butter and sugar in the mixing bowl and mix 20 Sec. / Speed 2.5

  6. Add the eggs, ground almonds and almond extract then mix 20 Sec. / Speed 3. Pour on top of the pastry base and level out with the back of a wet spoon. 

  7. Quarter the apples and take out the core. Using a mandolin knife, slice each quarter very thinly. Peel the pears, halve them and scoop out the core. Slice them very thinly widthways, keeping them together. Arrange on the frangipane. Roll an apple slice like a tube. Take another slice and wrap around the roll. Repeat a few more times and place on the frangipane.

  8. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes until golden brown and baked all the way through. Remove from oven, and leave to cool down. Cut off any unwanted pastry and enjoy dusted with icing sugar!
