When I saw the Almond Joy tart on the list for BAKED Sunday Mornings, I knew I’d make it while home for Christmas because my Father loves the candy bar. I wound up making it as a dessert for our Christmas dinner and it was so good, I decided to make it again on my return home.
BAKED Sunday Mornings is an online baking group who are baking through Baked Explorations: New Frontiers in Baking. I’ve missed quite a few of the recipes the group has done but I’ve enjoyed following along and seeing everyone else’s creations. Now that the rush of the holiday baking season is over, I’m going to be joining in more and I’m looking forward to it.

Almond Joy Tart
If you’re interested in the recipe for the tart, it’s posted on the BAKED Sunday Mornings site. This is a pretty simple tart to prepare but the dough can be tricky to work with because it’s quite sticky. Make sure it is well chilled and work quickly! The recipe as written in the book calls for making individual mini tarts but I don’t have that kind of time, gear, or patience. I think it worked well as a full sized tart- I used a 9” pan and the ingredient quantities as written were sufficient.
