This cake is very simple especially since it uses store-bought pie dough. What I liked most was that the marzipan not only brings a great almond flavor but also acts as a barrier and despite the plum juice, the dough stays crisp for days, a big difference with other similar tarts.
These tarts without molds, also known as galettes, are a peasant French dessert, which does not aspire to be perfect. So if you are afraid of the fancy fruit tarts this is a great option.
This is perfect as a dessert with whipped cream or ice cream, or in the evening with a delicious cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy!
