Fregolata Tart with Jam and Almonds

Jam Tart = an easy pat in the pan crust and jam filling = whatever jam you want! And you'll like like a pastry chef.

Fregolata – sounds fancy, doesn’t it? I love the way the word rolls off the tongue. I find myself saying it in an accent as I make it. This looks fancy, too, because it is made in a 10 inch tart pan. And it’s divine…
