Raspberry & Almond Frangipane

Existing for the sole purpose of showing off these beautifully in-season, local, tart and jammy, raspberries. Few people outside of Lynden actually know this, but Whatcom County (in the NW corner of WA) produces about 85% of the nation’s raspberries, so we knew that we had to showcase them in an exclusive Seattle flavor. To create this creamy treat, we gently simmer our fresh summer raspberries into cream and sugar, then swirl in thick homemade frangipane, a creamy paste made of roasted almonds ground with sugar.
