Please Rate this Recipe

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.
