Inspired by the classic French frangipane tart, the almond-filling of this summery tart pairs deliciously with all sorts of summer stone fruit. Here we used nectarines, but peach, apricot or even plums would also do nicely.
Did you know that nectarines belong to the same species of fruit as peaches? The only difference is that they have a smoother skin than their fuzzy siblings! But, this delicious stone fruit, similar as it may be, deserves a collection of incredible recipes in it's own right. So, we've gathered 20 of our best sweet treats using fresh nectarines that are perfect for summer cooking. We have everything from tantalising tarts to creamy trifles and homemade jams. There's even a recipe for a frozen nectarine and turkish delight parfait, if you're up for tackling a dish that's a little different.
With summer well and truly upon us, it's time to crack into the season's extraordinary fruit offerings. We've rounded up our best desserts using only the freshest stone fruits that are perfect for satisfying that sweet tooth. From tantalising tarts to cherry cheesecakes and beautiful baked peaches, there's something to complete any summer entertaining menu.
