Apricot Tart

Apricot Tart

A lovely French-style tart! There are two pastry options: home made, as in our recipe, or using ready-made.

Top Tips
To save time, home-madepastry can be made in advance and stored in a plastic bag in the fridge until needed. The apricots can also be soaked beforehand to save time. Both can be done the night before.

5. Place apricots and their soaking water in a saucepan over a gentle heat and cook until tender and all the water has evaporated (about 3 minutes).

6. Blend half the apricots to a puree, add soya cream and brandy and pour into the pastry shell.

7. Arrange the rest of the apricots over the puree.

8. Then bend the sides of the pastry over onto the apricots and mark with knife to make scallop shell effect.
