apricot tart with almond cream

Apricot tartlet with almond cream

Apricots and almonds are a perfect match. The skin is soft and slightly furry, but they can be eaten without having to be peeled. They taste sweet too without being too juicy.

  • 400 gr sweet shortcrust pastry - pate sablee sucrée

  • 500 gr small apricots

Prepare the crust

  • Roll out the shortcrust dough to 1-2 mm on a lightly floured working surface. Cut 4 discs of 15 cm.
  • Cover the bottom of each tartlet mould and gently press with your finger so the dough adheres the sides.
  • Trim the excess dough with a knife at the top of the rim.
  • Prick the bottom of the tartlet lightly and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Prepare the filling

  • Wash and cut the apricots in half and remove the stones.
