This recipe is from Real Simple magazine a few years back. Very tasty and easy tart to make. I have used Libbey brand canned apricots in lieu of fresh with good results. Also I always make my own pastry crust as it is almost as easy as pre made (just roll out between two wax paper sheets for easier releasing).

  • 13 cup slivered almonds
  • 8 Nabisco social tea biscuits (or Voortman tea biscuits)
