Marzipan Bakewell Crumble Tarts

Our take on the classic Bakewell Tart. We have created this delicious recipe by baking marzipan into the tart to give a delicious almond flavour,  and a crunchy crumble top. They have been finished with Sparkle Dust to make them shine! Delicious served warm!

Top Tips:

  • For any left over marzipan, why not roll them into tiny balls & dip them in melted chocolate- yummy!
  • You can grate marzipan into and onto anything- it’s particularly delicious on ice cream!

Making the tarts:

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F/ 160°c fan.

Step 2

Spray the tart tins with some non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3

Cream the butter, 50g marzipan, icing sugar and almond extract together in a mixer for approximately 1-2 minutes.

Step 4

Add in the flour slowly until it resembles rough bread crumbs. Tip into a bowl and gently rub between your finger tips until it resembles fine bread crumbs.

Step 5

Place 50g of the crumble mixture into each tart tin.

Step 6

Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture into the sides of the tin to create the crust around the edge

Take 240g of marzipan and knead on a clean, dry work surface until pliable.

Step 8

Roll out the marzipan on a surface lightly dusted with Icing Sugar.

Step 9

Take a 7.5cm circle cutter and cut out 8 discs of marzipan. Place these on top of the crumble mix in the tarts.

Step 10

Spoon in a generous amount of jam (approx. 20g) and place in the centre, on top of the marzipan discs.

Step 11

Top the jam with the remaining crumble mix.

Bake in the oven for 18-22 minutes until lightly browned.
