Sugarplum-Orange and Apricot-Earl Grey Jam Tarts Customize your favorite store-bought jam with orange zest and Earl Grey tea. Use any leftover dough to make delicious hazelnut cookies: Just roll, cut out, and bake.
A lovely crust is topped with a layer of your favorite jam, then covered with a frangipane layer, topped with almonds and baked. Finally drizzled with a sugar icing, and devoured by anyone who sees it!
Glaze is defined as a thin, liquid, sweet coating that adds both shine and color to pastries. When brushed on fresh fruit, a glaze serves as a protective coating to prevent the fruit from drying out. On a baked crust, it prevents a soggy pastry crust once the filling has been added. A pastry brush is normally used to lightly coat the fruit with the glaze.
