I’ve been in a pastry mood when I should really be in a green smoothie mood. Unfortunately, I don’t get in blended spinach moods as often as I should. Let’s go back to pastries.
frangipane / ˈfranjəˌpān /
an almond flavored cream or paste.
(or, a pastry filled with this)
Countless French pastry recipes call for the famous filling, Frangipane.
Frangipane is a custard-like cream filling made with almond paste.
The term dates back to the the 17th century and is thought to be originally derived from the word “Frangipani,” the name of a flower-producing shrub. These flowers are said to have been used in the flavoring of the cream.
Frangipane can be used to fill anything from cream puffs to tartlet shells.
I really want cream puffs right now.
