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. Spread across the bottom of a galette, it adds complexity to the rich flavor of stone fruit, as well as soaking up their juices as it bakes. The frangipane can be made in the time the dough chills in the fridge

Both of these recipes are kind of magical -- they take super simple ingredients like water, flour, butter, salt, and Vanns Smoked Spanish Paprika and turn them into beautiful, impressive golden brown focaccia and a deeply orange-red, perfectly flavored smoked paprika butter to be spread on top.
