This fresh apricot filled tart takes on a rustic appearance with a folded-over cornmeal crust. Fresh peaches may also be used.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease and lightly flour a large baking sheet; set aside.
  2. For the cornmeal crust, in a medium bowl stir together 3/4 cup flour, cornmeal, 2 tablespoons Splenda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut in butter or margarine until the size of small peas.
  4. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cold fat-free milk over mixture; gently toss with a fork.
  5. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons more fat-free milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough is moistened (dough will be crumbly).
  6. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 7 to 8 times or just until dough clings together and form into a ball. On the baking sheet, flatten dough.
  7. Roll into a 12-inch circle and set aside.
  8. For Filling:.
  9. In a bowl stir together 1/3 cup Splenda, the 3 tablespoons flour, and the nutmeg or cinnamon. Stir in the apricots or peaches and lemon juice.
  10. Mound the filling in center of crust, leaving a 2-inch border.
  11. Fold border up over filling.
  12. Brush top and sides of crust with the 2 teaspoons milk.
  13. Bake in a 350 F degree oven about 40 minutes or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.
  14. To prevent overbrowning, cover the edge of the crust with foil the last 10 to 15 minutes of baking if needed.
  15. Cool tart for 30 minutes on the baking sheet on a wire rack.

Got some great-tasting apricots at the local farmers' market & used them here for AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL TART! I particularly like making them this way, since the 'perfect' look isn't really important ~ AND, it's looks & taste spell home & hearth, and I don't want to leave out health & comfort! Definitely a keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
