Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Cup(s) All purpose flour
1/8 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
1 Pinch(s) Salt
6 Tablespoon(s) Chilled unsalted butter, cut
into pieces
3/4 stick
2 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Ice water, about
2 Teaspoon(s) Plus 4 1/2 tablespoons sugar
8 Apricots, halved pitted
1 Cup(s) Pitted cherries, about 6
ounces or
frozen thawed
2 Tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter, melted
cooled 1/4
Vanilla ice cream or frozen
FOR CRUST: Stir flour, 1/8 teaspoon sugar and salt in bowl to blend.
Add butter; rub in with fingertips until coarse meal forms. Mix in
enough water by tablespoons until clumps form. Gather into ball;
flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic; chill at least 1 hour and up to 2
days. Preheat oven to 400F. Line baking sheet with parchment. Roll out
dough on floured surface to 11-inch round. Transfer to prepared baking
sheet. FOR FILLING: Mix flour and 2 teaspoons sugar in bowl. Sprinkle
over crust, leaving 1 1/2-inch border. Place apricots cut side down on
crust, placing close together and leaving 1-1/2 inch border at outer
edge. Scatter cherries over apricots. Top with 4 tablespoons sugar.
Fold pastry edges up around apricots, pressing against apricots to
form scalloped border. Brush crust with butter; sprinkle with 1/2
tablespoon sugar. Bake until crust is golden and fruit is tender (some
juices from fruit will leak onto parchment), about 1 hour. Remove from
oven. Using pastry brush, brush tart with juices on parchment. Gently
slide parchment with tart onto rack. Carefully run long knife under
tart to loosen (crust is fragile). Cool on parchment until lukewarm.
Slide 9-inch-diameter tart pan bottom under tart, then place tart on
platter. Serve with ice cream or yogurt. Serves 6. Bon Appetit June
