BY LIFE’S LITTLE SWEETS
French Flag Tart has a homemade almond pie crust, a rich chocolate ganache filling, homemade, stabilized vanilla whipped cream, and fresh, seasonal berries like strawberries and blueberries placed on top, in the symbol of the French Flag.
– 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour – 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt – 1/4 teaspoon granulated white sugar, optional
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, Kosher salt, optional sugar, chopped almonds, and almond extract.
