      Thank you Barbara! It’ll be great with pears too! In fact, it’s one of my favourites with pears!

      Thank You Kiran, I love frangipane, always adds such a nutty creaminess to desserts.

    Lovely dish! I’d do an apple crostata for Thanksgiving. And this great plum one for right now! This is such a nice recipe – thanks so much.

      Thanks John! Yes, I learnt my lesson with the whole plum tart for Thanksgiving thing! Apples and pears are the best in this!

  5. Beautiful photos Nazneen. I’ve got cardamon in the pantry that I just don’t use enough. And it’s such a wonderful flavor. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Thanks Lisa! Yeah, you guys are getting into the spring flavours, which are great in their own right! We shall enjoy the autumn flavours in the mean time!

    If Orange Blossom water is my right achilles heel, Cardamom is my left. I adore it. I think I must have been born in the middle east in another life! This ticks all the boxes though – frangipane, cardamom and fruit. Brilliant!

      I think so Jas!! But I think you’re a world wide connoisseur!

  7. I was bummed out about all the fresh Summer peaches going away and completely forgot about plums…just gorgeous! And I love how you spiked it with cardamom..yum!

      Thanks Angela!I too am bummed about the peaches though, they were so good this year!

    I too am older and wiser and I try to buy seasonal items. This is not too difficult in NYC where the practice seems common.

    The crostata looks delicious and perfect!

      Thanks Dave, and yes, I do know of your affection to cardamom!

    Oh my – you put cardamom in the crust!!! Gawsh golly – what an amazing idea! I think I can just chomp on that crust – the fruit and almond cream are a delightful bonus! Love this

      Thanks Shashi!You know? It worked really well in the crust and with the frangipane cream, it kinda had a halwa taste going on!

      Thanks Asha! I would love to have you sit with me and enjoy this :)

    This looks like sheer heaven – cardamom is an amazing spice, isn’t it? I can’t understand how some people don’t like it! My wife would love this… she’s allergic to raw plums so served like this I think she’d be all over it!

      Thanks Charles! I don’t know how people don’t like cardamom! My rice pullaos and kormas and desserts would be lost without cardamom!

    Spices and sweet again! I can never have enough of it….especially when it comes packaged so beautifully with bright red plums, frangipane and crisp fragrant pastry. You manage to outdo yourself Nazneen…every time! Have a great weekend:-)

      Thank you Sonali! Your words are very kind but quite unwarranted , I think!

    I love your use of cardamom, it is so wonderful and so underused. Its definitely one of my favorite spices. This recipe makes me wish I still had access to my kitchen.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead.

    Great looking tart, I bet the cardamom and the frangipani are delicious together. Glad to hear you’re having some time to enjoy with friends. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Laith’s soccer game. GG
