Quick Apricot Tart

20120229-212901.jpg

I’d like to take advantage of the apricots before they start to disappear as we come to a close of the stonefruit season but the the days are whizzing by. Smoothies and quick fruit tarts seem to be the extent of my sweet treats in the past few weeks. It’s been a crazy start to the year, in a good, way with the school being booked up with many groups and full classes but I don’t have the brain space when teaching to think about photography the food we are creating. Might have to recruit someone to capture a few moments at some upcoming classes to share with.

So here is very easy quick apricot tart for those who want a treat but don’t have much time to cook or don’t want to indulge in cooking.

Ingredients-enough for 4
1 sheet of ready rolled puff pastry ( approx 24cm x 24cm)
8 apricots, halved and de-stoned
2 tbsp of ground almonds or hazelnuts
3 tbsp brown sugar

Method
Place sheet of puff pastry on a greaseproof baking sheet.
Sprinkle the ground nuts across the whole sheet of pastry.
Lay the apricots across the puff pastry, 4 across and four down (photo shows 1/4 of tart).
Sprinkle the brown sugar over the apricot halves.
Bake in for 30 minutes or until pastry is puffed and golden.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
