A simple almond frangipane elevates a rustic stone fruit galette.
Frangipane is one of those things that sounds more complicated than it is -- it's similar to marzipan, but uses butter and eggs along with sugar, almonds, and almond extract to create a spreadable cream that can be used in a variety of pastry.

The frangipane can be made in the time the dough chills in the fridge
