If you like pecan pie and like almonds you will enjoy this. It is like pecan pie but made with almonds instead, hence the name of the mini pies. Once again I use the refrigerated pie crust dough, added extra vanilla, almond extract and sugar as noted in this recipe. I LOVE almond and this is yummy...

How To Make almond frangipane pies

  • 1
    Preheat the electric pie maker until ready to use.
  • 2
    Cut the pre made crust into 4 large rounds using the pastry cutter.
  • 3
    In a food processor, combine 1 cup of the toasted almonds and sugar. Process until the mixture is finely ground. Add the butter, egg, egg yolk, vanilla and almond extract. Process until well blended and smooth.
  • 4
    Working quickly, place the pie dough rounds into the pie maker, molding the dough into the wells, forming the bottom crust.
  • 5
    Divide the filling among the 4 crusts and spread evenly. The remaining almonds are used for "garnish".
  • 6
    Following manufacturers instructions, bake the pies until the crusts are brown and the filling is puffed and slightly cracked, about 11 minutes.
  • 7
    Using the pie lifter or fork, gently remove the pies onto a wire rack to cool.
  • 8
    Once cooled, top with confectioners sugar, remaining almonds and raspberries. Serve warm or at room temperature.
