Almond Plum Tarts (Gluten Free)

IMG_3336These tarts got rave reviews when I served them recently.  After several requests for the recipe I decided to share it here on our site for more of you to enjoy. This recipe will make about 32 small tarts.

You will need:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup (brown) rice flour
  • 1 tbsp almond flavouring
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • approx. 2 tbsp  of 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp milk
  • Zentis plum butter
  • greased mini tart tin.  I recommend using butter.

Mix the first 5 ingredients together evenly. Knead in the butter. Add just enough of the egg mixture for dough to hold together without being sticky. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls.

Spoon about a 1/2 tsp of plum butter into the center of each tart. A good quality apricot jam like Bonne Maman could be substituted for the plum butter.  Bake at 350 degree F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown as pictured.  Cool before removing them from the tin.
