While I was in Tuscany, I fell in love with 2 things: almond flavored desserts and figs! So everyone takes something different away from their travels through this region of Italy and for me it is this Tuscan Frangipane with Figs. The frangipane hits your mouth with several flavor with the sweet almonds, lemon zest and vanilla bean. Topped with figs, thyme and orange zest this lovely dessert will impress all guest with the diverse flavors of all things that are Tuscan!
