12th Day of Hipcooks: Quince & Frangipani Tart

Hark, the Hipcooks angels sing: Happy 12th day of Hipcooks, everyone!

Here’s a holiday table topper to crown the meal. A quince and frangipani tart, served in solitary splendor, is a showstopper of a dessert. I hope you have some poached quince left…are those beauties still sitting on the mantle, or have you been a busy Hipcook?

There are a lot of steps to preparing this dessert — the good news is that you can space it out if you need to. Make the sweet pastry case one day, the frangipani on another, and the rest is child’s play.

Next, prepare the frangipani. You can store it and assemble the tart on another day, or go straight to the assembly. How to make a Quince Tart

Plop the frangipani in the pastry case and artfully arrange the quince on top.
