BETH’S APRICOT ALMOND TARTLETTE RECIPE
Makes 12 tarts
7 ounces (200g) almond paste
½ cup (120 g) of unsalted butter
3 tbsp (75 g) sugar
½ tsp (2.5 ml) Almond extract
¾ cup (90 g) flour
1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
1/3 cup (50 g) sliced raw almonds
Powdered sugar for garnish
12 Apricot halves (6 whole apricots)
2 sheets puffed pastry cut into 3×3 squares
1 container vanilla ice cream
Cream together the almond paste, unsalted butter and sugar.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating in between additions. Add almond extract.
Whisk together the flower, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture to combine.
Place puffed pastry on a floured surface. Cut pastry into 3×3 squares. Roll out slightly.
Fit squares into a muffin tin that has been lightly sprayed with baking spray. Spoon in 2 tbsp of filling into each cup, top with 1 tsp of almonds and place apricot halves in center.
Pop muffin tin in the freezer for 10 mins (or refrigerator for 15 mins) to firm up.
Meanwhile preheat oven to 400F degrees (200C)
Bake for 20 mins, until pastry is puffed and golden and centers are set.
Allow to cool slightly, dust with powdered sugar, serve with vanilla ice cream.
