Apricot& honey tartes

DSC_1123

I´ve told you about our  large apricot order from a farmer in Burgenland, because our own apricots wouldn´t be enough this year. We always make apricot jam , dry some of them and keep the nicest ones to eat and for baking. So I made some delicous apricot and almond tartes with honey which turned out so delicious and everybody loved them.

Have a great week! (:

This is what you will need:

Pie crust

  • 250 g  flour
  • 100g powdered sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs. vanilla sugar
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • a pinch of salt

Put flour, salt, sugar  and butter on your working surface. Start kneading. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until no butter lumps remain. Add egg  and keep kneading until dough is smooth. Roll out dough and cut out circles using a cookie cutter or a cup, just like I did. Lay dough into your muffin tin and bake in oven (oven temperature 170°) for 15 minutes.

Prepare filling

  • 115g butter at room- temperature
  • 115g honey
  • 100g grated almonds
  • 2 eggs
  • 60g heavy cream
  • apricots

Combine butter, hones, grated almonds and eggs in a medium bowl until homogeneous. Then add heavy cream using a spatula. Remove tartes from oven when light brown. Cut apricots into slices. Put 1 tbs. of filling in each little tarte crust and garnish with 2-3 slices of apricots. Bake in oven for anothetr 20 minutes!

Let cool out completely, dust with powdered sugar and serve.

Enjoy!
