Berries, amaretto, marzipan, with a sweet crumble topping! This recipe is based on the marzipan tarts that my mormor would make for me in Norway when I was a boy. This recipe is presented by my friends at Fiesta!


Serves 4

You will need:

2 cups mixed berries

4 apricots, cut into wedges

3 plums, cut into wedges

½ cup amaretto

1⁄3 cup all purpose flour

3 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons brown sugar

½ cup crumbled marzipan

fresh rosemary

  1. Place the berries, apricots, and plums in a bowl and add the amaretto.
  2. Let the berries and fruit macerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, mix flour, butter, and sugar to a crumbly mixture.
  4. Place berries, fruits, and the juice in ovenproof bowls and top with the sugar mix, crumbled marzipan, and a little fresh rosemary.
  5. Bake at 375°F for about 10 minutes, then turn on the broiler so that you toast the marzipan. Watch carefully to ensure that the marzipan gets toasted, but doesn’t burn.
  6. Serve as is or with some lightly sweetened whipped cream.

TIP:

You can make this with whatever fruit combination you like. It's also absolutely acceptable to use frozen fruit! Also, I love to make individual servings in bowls, but you could make this in a single casserole as well.
