Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

225 Gram(s) Plain flour, 8oz
115 Gram(s) Butter, chilled and cubed
1 Egg yolk
3 Tablespoon(s) Ice cold water
8 Tablespoon(s) Apricot jam
85 Gram(s) Butter, at room temperature
85 Gram(s) Caster sugar, 3oz
85 Gram(s) Ground almonds, 3oz
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon(s) Almond extract
6 Apricots
1 1/2 uit, 40 1/2 Fat 7 Other Carbohydrates
Pre-heat the oven to 180øC/350øF/gas mark 4. Put a baking tray in to
heat. Put the flour and butter in a food processor and blitz until
mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Mix the egg yolk with the water, pour
into the food processor and blitz again until the mixture comes
together in a ball. Roll out the pastry thinly and use it to line a
20 x 4cm (8 x 1 1/2 inch) flan ring with a removable base. Spread the
pastry base with 2 tbsp of the jam. Beat together the butter and sugar
until it is light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs one at a time.
Next, stir in the ground almonds and the almond extract. Spread the
filling mixture on top of the pastry and put the flan tin on top of
the baking tray in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the filling is
risen and brown. Meanwhile, thinly slice the apricots. As soon as the
filling has cooked, remove the tart from the oven and arrange the
apricot slices on top in a spiral design. Gently warm 2 tbsp of jam
with 2 tbsp of water, then use it to brush the apricot slices to give
them a nice glaze. Replace the tart in the oven for a further 5
minutes to cook the apricots a little. Serve the tart warm. Converted
