Club Baked~Almond Joy Tart

It's another day of fun at Club Baked!  Today we made the Almond Joy Tart  from the cookbook we are happily baking our way through, Baked Explorations by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. Our hostess today is Linda from Sassy is Baking. Stop by, visit with her and get the recipe to make this delicious treat!

Almond Joy Tart
I made one change from the original recipe.
I used all milk chocolate for the ganache.

I love when I learn a new skill because I baked
or cooked something I might not normally make.
So, what did I learn how to do?
Skin  almonds!!
It's so simple, but I guess I never had a reason to
have to skin an almond.
Place your almonds in a pot of boiling water.
Let them boil for 1 minute.

Drain the almonds.
Let them cool for just a few minutes.
Then, pinch the skin on the almonds, at the point,
and it comes right off.
There they are. Perfectly skinned.!

Thanks for joining me today.

Don't forget to stop by
Linda's Blog for the delicious recipe for todays

  1. Your tart looks great! I didn't have the mini tart pans so I just make one large one. I loved this recipe.

  2. That looks really good! your chocolate is mouth watering. I totally blanked on blanching the almonds and just toasted them in the oven. Eh- they're layered in chocolate, no one will know.

  3. Oh my!~! This looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
