Author Notes: This tart is if a linzer cookie and a frangipane tart met, fell in love and had a baby. I was actually doubting it during the process and you might too but have faith it turns out fabulous. You have to dollop the frangipane dough on top of the jam and spread it without incorporating it with the jam. It takes a little patience and love but if you take your time the reward is delicious. - singing_baker
