Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart
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
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
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
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 (see how to).

Stage 5 - 5 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart
Arrange the apricots halves on the almond cream, round side upwards, and press down lightly.

Stage 6 - 35 min.
Apricot and almond cream tart
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
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
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.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, folded in a plastic film.

Home made.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
