About this recipe:This tarte aux abricots, or apricot tart, is a recipe that my godmother gave me. Not a crumb remained, this is a truly finger-licking tart recipe! Use homemade apricot jam if possible..I used some that my mum had just made!
125g caster sugar
3 eggs, separated
125g melted butter
250g flaked almonds
250g apricot jam
1 unbaked shortcrust pastry case
Method Prep:10min › Cook:45min › Ready in:55min
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 6.
Bake pastry case in preheated oven (on its own) for 15 minutes (until baked through but not browned).
Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl beat sugar with egg yolks until mixture begins to whiten in colour; add melted butter and almonds and mix well; finally, beat egg whites into stiff peaks and fold into almond mixture.
Spread jam over baked pastry case, then top with egg mixture and bake for another 30 minutes.
