A French classic that Dorie describes as "one of the great forgotten pastries of France" was one of our Tuesdays with Dorie choices for March from Baking Chez Moi. Comprising two rounds of crisp puff pastry encasing layers of sweet frangipane and homemade prune jam, it was as lovely to look at as it was to eat.
I included the optional lemon zest in the almond cream which added a light, lemony flavour to the dessert, but if I were to make this again, I would also use the juice from the lemon to brighten the
prune jam a little. Delicious nevertheless.
