This has a lot of potential but missed the mark. I used whole wheat flour (couldn't find emmer) and the crust was great! I felt that the quantity of almond filling was not enough and in fact the taste disappeared under the tart cranberries. I would do this again, but make more filling or use almond paste which has more body and is sweeter.

Easy to make, beautiful presentation, flavors complimented each other very well. Definitely making this again!

My son really liked this. The almond frangipane balanced out the tartness of the cranberries a bit. Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream is good with it. Will make again when I need to use up some cranberries.

OMG That there's a keeper! I couldn't find the fancy flour but used reg''lar flour and made no other diviations! Oh yes, I did. I used "almond meal" from Trader Joe's in place of the ground, blanced almonds. It was plum wonderful and I'll do it agin.
