Step by step recipe

Stage 1
15 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #1 Spread or roll out 300 g Sweetcrust pastry (pâte sablée), line the tart mould/circle, and prick all over the base.

Trim off the excess dough.
Stage 2
5 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #2 If you have any dough left over, you can cut it out in small shapes to make biscuits which you can top with an almond, a pistachio or a simply pinch of caster sugar.
Stage 3
10 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #3 Over the dough, spread out 200 g Almond cream or frangipane in an even layer, put in the refrigerator until cooking.
Stage 4
30 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #4 If you can face it, peel the apricots, like for tomatos by scalding them. This peeling has two advantages: the apricots are more pleasant to eat, and they are less acid while cooking.

Preheat the oven to 200°C or 392°F.

Divide each apricot in half, and discard the stones.
Stage 5
5 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #5 Arrange the apricots halves on the almond cream, round side upwards, and press down lightly.
Stage 6
35 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #6 Cook for 30/35 minutes. If making biscuits, take them out as soon as they are golden, after about 10 minutes.
Stage 7
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #7 Remove tart as soon as the almond cream is nicely browned, leave to cool on a rack.
Stage 8
5 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart : Photo of step #8 If possible "glaze" the top with a pastrycook's glaze or a little apricot jam.

Remarks

The acidity of apricots and the sweetness of the almond cream go very very well together.
