Apricot tart from my childhood

Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 6


  • 1 sweet shortcrust pastry
  • 1 kg (2 lb) apricots
  • 40 g (3 tbsp) sugar + 2 tsp for the garnish
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 25 g (1/4 cup) flaked almonds


  1. Pit the apricots and set 12 of them aside for the garnish. 

  2. Cook the rest of the apricots down into a stew with the sugar vanilla pod for 10 to 15 min without a lid, mixing occasionally.

  3. Preheat the oven to 200 °C. 

  4. Roll out the dough, place it in the tart tin and prick with a fork. Pour the stewed apricots into the pastry and place the apricots we set aside previously on the tart.
