Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

175 Gram(s) Buttery shortcrust pastry
3 Tablespoon(s) Apricot jam, sieved
115 Gram(s) Unsalted butter, softened
115 Gram(s) Caster sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
140 Gram(s) Ground almonds
1 Tablespoon(s) Self raising flour
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
1 Pinch(s) Salt
450 Gram(s) Fresh ripe apricots
1 Tablespoon(s) Flaked almonds
2 Tablespoon(s) Kirsch
4 Tablespoon(s) Water
1 Strip lemon zest
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 5. Roll out the pastry and line a 4x4
inch loose bottomed deep sided tart tins. Bake blind. Spread the
sieved jam into the bases. Beat the butter and sugar together until
light and fluffy. Add the beaten egg a little at a time. Sieve
together the ground almonds, flour, buttery pastry and salt and then
fold gently in to the creamed mixture. Spread on top of the jam in the
tart cases. Cut 6 apricots in half and stone them. Press 3 into each
tart, cut side down, on top of the almond mixture and pressing them in
lightly. Scatter with flaked almonds. Bake until well risen and
golden brown and firm to the touch, usually about 30-35 minutes. Turn
out of the tins and dredge lightly with icing sugar. Serve with the
poached apricots. Poached apricots: Skin the rest of the apricots by
blanching. Cut the apricots in half and stone them. Put into a bowl.
Make a stock syrup with the kirsch, sugar, water and zest. Drop the
apricots into the syrup and poach lightly. If they are fully ripe this
will only take a minute and the fruit will be a bright orange colour.
Chill well before serving. Drizzle the plate with a little apricot
syrup and top the fruit with a sprig of mint. Converted by MC_Buster.
