Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Arrange the apricots halves on the almond cream, round side upwards, and press down lightly.

Stage 6 - 35 min.

Cook for 30/35 minutes. If making biscuits, take them out as soon as they are golden, after about 10 minutes.

Stage 7

Remove tart as soon as the almond cream is nicely browned, leave to cool on a rack.

Stage 8 - 5 min.

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.
