I love the Weekly Times and their recipe's. This is a fabulous tart. Plums, Peaches or Berries can be substituted for the Apricots. I am not great at pastry but found this one easy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • PASTRY

  • 250 g plain flour
  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 125 ml natural yoghurt
  • FILLING

  • 34 cup almond meal
  • 10 medium apricots, halved and pitted
  • 12 cup apricot jam
  • 3 tablespoons slivered almonds, lightly toasted, for garnish

Directions

  1. To make the pastry: Dice the butter, and then pulse with the flour in a food processor until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the yoghurt and continue to pulse until the dough starts to incorporate into a ball. Wrap the dough in plastic film and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. Roll the chilled pastry out until it is 3mm thick and line a 23cm spring form tart tin. Chill pastry for 1 hour.
  3. Heat oven to 220°C Spread the almond meal evenly over the dough; arrange the prepared apricot halves over the top, cut side down.
  4. Bake until the pastry crust is golden brown and the fruit is tender, 25-30 minutes. Transfer the tart to a wire rack; let cool.
  5. Heat the apricot jam in a large saucepan until warmed. Brush the top of the tart generously with the jam; then sprinkle with the almonds.
  6. Let cool completely before serving. Serve with cream or Ice-Cream if desired.
