Apricot and Almond Tart 

Lazy summer Sundays are made for apricot tarts.

To make this you need:

Firm apricots (no not hard), stoned and sliced

1 x pkt ready rolled puff pastry ( let’s be lazy, it’s Sunday after all, and jus rol is vegan if you wish)

1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground 

Pinch Salt 

1/2 vanilla pod seeds

Small pkt of almonds 

Water 

Brown sugar 2 tbsp

Method 

Sprinkle the puff pastry with 1/2 tsp of brown sugar and cinnamon then fold over and roll out and cut into your desired shape and size ..I also made individual tartlets. 

Score a margin around the edge of the pastry and then place in the fridge to keep cool.

In a high speed blender, place all the other ingredients except the apricots, pulse to make a smooth thick paste . 

Remove your pastry from the fridge and inside of the margin you have scored, spread the almond paste.


Layer with the apricots and sprinkle with a little brown sugar.

Place in a preheated oven say 180c fan, bake for 25 -30 mins or until the pastry is puffed and golden.


Or if you would like to make individual tartlets use a mini muffin tin to shape your pastry cases, fill with the almond paste and cover with half an apricot. 


Note: if you like sweet things add an additional 1tbsp brown sugar.

Enjoy.
