 Despite the current craze for the famous sun tart, I had never published a recipe for this trendy tart before. I am therefore taking advantage of Epiphany to offer you this sun tart like a galette des rois: flavored with almond cream! Post-holiday period obliges, I did not realize the classic frangipane… To tell the truth, I did not really want a mixture of pastry cream + almond cream. So I stuck to a simple almond cream.

The sun tart in a few words ...

To achieve it, nothing could be simpler. The principle is almost always the same: provide you with two puff pastry doughs (homemade or bought in the store, but of quality) and a filling of your choice. The rest is a snap! Then you just have to garnish the first dough and then place the second puff pastry disc. It's up to you to cut the pie into equal parts - I usually do it by 16 - then twist each of them. A little egg gilding and hop in the oven!

I really appreciate this aperitif tart in its salty version (pesto, tapenade, chorizo ​​cream etc.) but the sweet version is not bad either! You are free to adapt it to your taste preferences from aperitif to dessert ...

Here is my recipe:
