APRICOT TART WITH PISTACHIO FRANGIPANE
This tart requires a time commitment: There are several elements, and while each is simple, they need to be prepared and cooled before the tart is assembled. But it pays back in complexity of flavor and by looking particularly impressive. It will make a remarkable dessert at the end of a lavish summer feast. You can start the day before, making all the elements and baking the frangipane and apricots in the tart. Once it has cooled completely, wrap it in plastic wrap overnight. The next day, fill with the crème pâtissière and top with the remaining ingredients. Other light dessert wines can be used instead of Sauternes.

- Start with the pastry shell: Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit/190 degrees Celsius. Prepare a 9-inch/23-centimeter nonstick tart pan with a removable base by lining the bottom with parchment and greasing the sides with butter. If needed, on a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a circle roughly 1/8- to 1/4-inch/3- to 5-millimeters thick and large enough to line the base and sides of the tin, plus extra to poke above the edge by about 1/2 inch/1 centimeter. (Some store-bought doughs may be the perfect size right out of the package.) Carefully line the pan with the pastry and press it down so it covers the base and sides, with excess overhang.
- Cover the pastry with parchment paper or waxed paper and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Place pan on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, then remove the paper with the beans. Prick the pastry base and sides with a fork about 15 times, then bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
- Poach the apricots: Add Sauternes, lime half, vanilla, sugar and 3 tablespoons/40 milliliters water to a saucepan that is just big enough to hold the apricot halves in one layer. Place the pan over high heat and cook until the sugar has melted and the liquid boils.
- Remove the pan from the heat and place the apricots in the hot liquid, cut-sides down. Leave them to poach in the residual heat until they are soft but still hold their shape (20 to 40 minutes, depending on how ripe they are) flipping them every 10 minutes. Transfer the apricots to a covered container and refrigerate until needed. Squeeze the lime into the syrup and then discard it; return the saucepan with the syrup to medium-high heat and simmer until reduced to 2 tablespoons, 5 to 8 minutes. Set aside at room temperature until needed.
- Next, make the frangipane: Set aside 2 tablespoons of pistachios for serving. In a food processor, blitz the remaining pistachios until coarsely ground. Add the marzipan and blitz to a coarse crumb. Add all the remaining frangipane ingredients and blitz for 30 seconds, until everything just comes together.
- Once the tart shell has cooled completely, spoon the frangipane back in and spread it flat with the back of a spoon. Cut 3 1/2 ounces/100 grams of the apricot halves (3 or 4 of them) into quarters (or sixths if larger) and arrange evenly over the frangipane, pushing them down gently. Bake tart for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown and just set. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Remove the tart from the tin and set on a wire rack to cool completely. If making the recipe over two days, wrap the pastry in plastic wrap (cling film) once it has cooled completely.
- While the frangipane is baking (or the next day), make the crème pâtissière: In a medium bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons sugar with the cornstarch (cornflour), flour and yolks until smooth. Add milk, butter, vanilla and the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar to a saucepan over medium-high heat and cook until warm but not boiling. Remove the milk from the heat. While whisking, pour a third of the warm milk into the egg mix, and whisk well. Pour the mixture back into the pan with the rest of the milk and return to medium-low heat. Continue cooking, whisking vigorously, until mixture bubbles and becomes very thick. Remove pan from heat and leave to cool for 5 minutes, then spoon on top of the cooled frangipane, smoothing with the back of a spoon. Cover surface with plastic wrap (cling film) and refrigerate for 2 hours until completely set.
- Just before serving, cut the remaining apricot halves into quarters (or sixths if larger). Arrange the apricots evenly in circles over the crème pâtissière, cut-side up, leaving a 2-inch/5-centimeter gap between each apricot (push them into the crème slightly as you go). Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the reduced poaching syrup evenly over the tart, then drizzle the orange blossom water over the tart. Roughly chop the reserved pistachios and mix with 1 teaspoon sugar. Sprinkle the pistachio mix in the gaps between the apricots to cover the crème pâtissière and serve at once with the remaining syrup drizzled over each piece once sliced.
These tiny tarts are an extra-special dessert for any holiday or occasion. We love the fruity and nutty flavor. -Phyllis Hickey, Bedford, New Hampshire

APRICOT PISTACHIO TART
- Process 1 cup nuts and the granulated sugar in a food processor to combine. Add butter; process until a paste forms. Add egg, vanilla, and salt; process to combine. Set aside.
- On a lightly floured surface, press edges of both pastry sheets together to form one large sheet. Roll out to a 9-by-17-inch rectangle; transfer to a baking sheet. Spread reserved pistachio mixture over dough, leaving a 3/4-inch border.
- Position rectangle so that a short end is nearest you. Arrange apricots on top in 4 vertical rows, alternating direction in which apricots face from row to row. Fold in edges of dough; use your index finger to make a scalloped border. Refrigerate until cold, about 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together yolk and cream; brush egg wash over edges of tart shell. Chop remaining tablespoon nuts; sprinkle nuts and turbinado sugar over apricots. Bake, rotating sheet halfway through, until crust is deep golden brown and fruit is juicy, about 35 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
- Meanwhile, heat jam with 1 1/2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring, until thinned, about 2 minutes. Pass through a fine sieve into a small bowl. Brush glaze over fruit.

- Make the Pastry : Place the butter in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the confectioners' sugar and mix until creamy. Add almond powder, salt, vanilla and grated lemon and mix for 30 seconds, then add the egg. Add the flour and continue to mix for 10 to 20 seconds or until the dough comes together. Flatten the dough into a disc, wrap in plastic film and rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 160° C (320 °F) and set the oven rack in the lower-middle position. Take the pastry out of the fridge. Place it on a sheet of parchment paper dusted with flour and roll it out into a circle 5mm (0.2inch) thick. Press the rolled pastry into the bottom and sides of the tart pan, if it tears, press it back together with your fingers. Trim the edges and return to the fridge for 30 minutes or the freezer for 15.
- Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, then remove the weights and continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes or until the tart shell has an evenly brown and baked through. (If you find the sides of the dough are collapsing during the baking, remove the weights and press the half-baked dough back into place. Return the weights and continue baking.)
- *Make the pastry cream: *Put the milk, the vanilla pod grains + scraped out pod, in a medium size saucepan and heat just until the point of boiling. While the milk is heating, lightly whisk the egg yolks and the sugar. Add the corn flour and the flour and mix well.
- Pour 1/3 of the hot milk over the egg mixture and whisk vigorously until smooth and combined. Pour over the rest of the milk and whisk again until smooth. Remove the vanilla bean pod.
- Return the mixture to the saucepan and place over medium heat. Whisk without stopping until the cream thickens - be careful to not to let it catch on the bottom of the pan and burn. Continue cooking and whisking until the cream is smooth, thickened and glossy. Continue cooking for another 1 to 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
- Pour the cream into a wide shallow pan or bowl. Dot the surface with butter to prevent a skin forming while the pastry cream cools. Measure out 150 g for this recipe. Cover the rest with cling film and and reserve in the fridge for another use.
- Make the pistachio cream : Place the pistachios into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. (Don't over processes or you will end up with a paste.) Place the chopped pistachios and all the other ingredients for the cream in a large bowl and mix together. Set aside.
- Finish the tart and bake:
- Fill the cooked pastry shell with the pistachio cream, about 2 centimeters thick. Place the apricots (in halves or cut into quarters) on top of the cream, cut side up. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and place in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes. (keep an eye on the tart, all ovens cook differently!)
- Remove from oven and let cool completely before slicing.
APRICOT TART WITH PISTACHIOS
Working with phyllo dough is easy and satisfying, especially for cooks who are inclined to shy away from making pastry. Frozen puff pastry is having a moment, but for little effort, you can achieve similar results with phyllo sheets and never lift a rolling pin. Bright orange apricots are the ideal fruit, but other summer stone fruits, such as pluots, plums or nectarines, also work well. This makes a very impressive open face tart with a very crisp, ultraflaky crust.

- Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lay 1 sheet phyllo on a parchment-lined 12-by-18-inch rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon butter and brush to coat the entire phyllo sheet.
- Top with another sheet and butter as above. Repeat with 7 more sheets, for a total of 9, buttering as you go. The final, top layer should also be buttered. (The rest of the phyllo can be wrapped and frozen for future use.)
- Dot the top sheet with jam by the teaspoon, then, using a spatula, spread the jam to cover the entire sheet, leaving a 2-inch border.
- Sprinkle a layer of half the chopped pistachios over the jam. Place the apricot wedges, skin-side down, in even rows across the surface, then sprinkle again with remaining pistachios.
- Carefully fold over the edges on all sides of the tart to make a 10-by-16-inch rectangle. Brush folded sides with butter. Sprinkle sugar generously over apricots and folded edges.
- Bake until pastry is golden and apricots begin to color, about 1 hour. Cool for 15 minutes, then cut into squares. Serve warm or at room temperature.

- First, make the pastry. Sieve the flour, ground almonds and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and lightly rub in until you have no large lumps. Make a well in the centre, mix the egg yolk and sugar together until the sugar is dissolved, then pour into the well. Stir until the liquid is well combined and you have a smooth, very soft pastry. Wrap in baking parchment and rest in the fridge for 1 hr.
- Roll the pastry between two sheets of baking parchment, then line a deep 23cm fluted tart tin with the pastry - you will need to work quite quickly when it comes up to room temperature. Don't worry if it tears or breaks, just patch it up - it will knit together again when it bakes. Return the pastry case to the fridge while you make the filling. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
- To make the frangipane, beat together the sugar and butter until fluffy, then add the egg, egg yolk and ground nuts. Fill the tart case with the frangipane and top with the apricots. Press them into the frangipane and sprinkle with the chopped pistachios. Bake in the oven for 40-50 mins until the pastry is crisp and golden and the frangipane is puffed and coloured.
