Indiana Frangipane Bites

Indiana University uses the word Frangipane in its Alma Mater song. We never knew what it meant, just that it rhymed with Indiana.

According to Wikipedia frangipane is the Plumeria tree. It can also be a pastry filling made of or tasting of almonds.

So here's the cookie!
