Galette des rois frangipane

  • Time 30 minutes
  • Yield serves 6


    1 pound puff pastry

    4 ounces ground almonds
    4 ounces icing sugar
    4 ounces butter at room temperature
    4 large eggs
    2 oz flour
    1 tablespoon dark rum
    1/4 cup slivered almonds

    1 fève (optional)


    For the filling: Combine the ground almonds, sugar and butter until smooth.
    Add three of the eggs, flour and rum: mix until combined.
    Stir in slivered almonds.
    Preheat oven 375°F (190°C).

    To assemble, divide the dough into two equal parts.
    Roll out one part to form a 10 inch circle and place on a baking sheet.
    Spread the filling on the pastry leaving a rim, about half an inch wide, all the way around. Put in a porcelaine figure (feve) if you have one. Brush the rim with egg.
    Roll out the rest of the dough to form a 9 inch circle. Place on top of the filling.
    Pinch together the pastry at the edges, making sure that it is well sealed. Brush the top with the remaining egg. Make a few slits in the center of the pastry.
    Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes.
    Serve warm.
