Instructions Checklist

  • Toss the quartered apricots with the white sugar in a bowl. Mix almond meal, confectioners' sugar, and egg together in another bowl to create a paste. Spread almond paste on the center of the pie crust, leaving 1/2 inch of bare crust all around the edge. Arrange the sugared apricots over the almond paste. Fold the 1/2-inch bare edge of the crust inward over the almond paste and apricots, leaving the center of the tart uncovered. Crimp the edge down with a fork as you go around the tart.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Brush the melted apricot jam over the hot galette. Slice and serve.

This was a very nice not too sweet dessert that went together quickly. The only changes to be made in the future are: 1. More apricots 2. Baked in a tart pan with removable bottom 3. Oven temp. 375 and check the pie every 7 min. after 1/2 hour. I used a small knife to test if the apricots were softened. 4. Did not need to glaze afterward. This was truly a delicious dessert and perfect if you wish something sweet after a meal without a lot of heaviness Read More

I do a lot of baking with ground almonds. A hint if you cannot find almond meal: use a coffee grinder to grind blanched almonds. Read More

I love this recipe. It is so easy but the end result is so special! My fresh apricots came off the tree in our neighbor's yard and they were small comparitively so I more than doubled the amount of apricots. Next time I'll go ahead and triple the amount! It was delicious. I also totally agree (and so does my family) that the melted apricot jam is completely unnecessary and even interferes with the perfect simplicity of this dessert. I'll be baking another one tonight! Read More

good but my apricots were too juicy and I had to remove some liquid near the end. (maybe I will add a little cornstarch to the sugar apricot mixture next time to firm it up. Read More

Easy especially if you made it more than once. I made my own almond paste just grounding up almonds in the food processor. Read More

I made a tart. My neighbor gave me some apricots from her tree. At first I tried peeling the apricots using the hot water method but they were hard anyway so since I was just making this for myself I made it with some peeled and some unpeeled. The tart was ok without peeling the apricots Yum! The apricots were great! I used the apricot jam glaze. I ate the first slice without the glaze then glazed it. The apricots in the jam filled the gaps where there were some and was not too sweet. So you can leave the glaze off if you want but I liked the glaze and it gave the tart a nice finish. Read More
