For the Pastry Crust:

1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons ice water
For the Frangipane Filling:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup almond flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
A pinch of salt
For the Plum Topping:

4-5 ripe plums, sliced and pitted
2 tablespoons apricot jam, for glaze
Sliced almonds, for garnish

 Prepare the Pastry Crust:

In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, and salt.
Pulse in the chilled, cubed butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with ice water. Slowly add this mixture to the food processor while pulsing, until the dough comes together.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, knead gently, and shape it into a disk. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour after wrapping in plastic wrap.

Make the Frangipane Filling:

Cream the softened butter and sugar together in a mixing mixer until light and creamy.
Gradually add the almond flour, mixing well.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, almond extract, and a pinch of salt. Mix until smooth. Set aside.
Assemble the Tart:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Roll out the chilled pastry dough on a floured surface to fit a 9-inch tart pan. Trim any excess dough before pressing it into the pan.
Spread the frangipane filling evenly over the pastry crust.
Arrange the Plum Slices:

Gently place the sliced plums on top of the frangipane filling in a circular pattern, slightly pressing them in.
Bake to Perfection:

To catch any drips, place the tart on a baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes, or until the frangipane is golden and set, and the pastry is crisp.
Glaze and Garnish:

In a small saucepan, heat the apricot jam until melted. Brush the melted jam over the plum slices for a glossy finish.
Sprinkle sliced almonds over the tart for an extra touch of elegance.
Serve and Enjoy:

Allow the tart to cool slightly before slicing.
Serve the Plum Frangipane Tart on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
