My Apricot Tart recipe shows the fruit tart preparation quickly and in star chef quality.

The Tarte recipe comes from my apprenticeship at Alfons Schuhbeck. Since then I have hardly changed the apricot tart recipe, because the small cakes simply taste delicious.

You can make your loved ones and your guests happy with this tart with coffee and cake or prepare a dessert for a menu. I wish you every success and look forward to your comments.

1. Prepare your own Apricot Tart

The basis for this tart is puff pastry. You can buy fresh or frozen puff pastry and process it directly. You also need fresh, sweet, ripe apricots or apricots, apricot jam, some rum, vanilla sugar and marzipan. If your apricot tart may become a dessert, I recommend fresh mint, icing sugar, pistachio chips and a good vanilla ice cream as an addition. I’ll show you how to prepare the delicious tartes step by step below:

Blätterteig für Aprikosentarte ausstechen

Cut out the puff pastry, place on baking paper and prick the top with a fork.

Marzipan für Aprikosentarte vorbereiten

Cut marzipan and form it into balls, then thinly shape it.

Place the thinly formed marzipan balls on the centre of the puff pastry.

Rohe Aprikosenspalten auf die Tartes legen

Cut the apricots into thin slices and place them on top of the marzipan.

  • 1 Piece puff pastry
  • 80 g Marzipan
  • 80 g apricot
  • 4 tsp. Apricot Confiture
  • 20 g vanilla sugar
  • 1 tbs. Rum
  • 4 balls Vanilla Ice
  • 1 tsp. icing sugar
  • 1 tsp. pistacios
  • 1/4 bunch mint
  • Preheat the oven to 220-240 degrees Celsius hot air. Roll out the puff pastry, next cut out round circles about 12 cm in diameter.
  • Line the puff pastry doughs on a baking tray with baking paper and prick them evenly on the top with a fork. Cut the marzipan paste into even pieces, form thin plates and place in the middle of the puff pastry.
  • Mix the rum with vanilla sugar and apricot jam and serve. I like to use this combination to glaze the apricot tarts, which gives them their beautiful lustre and makes the jam caramelise easily, which is a real taste sensation!
  • Cut the apricots in half and pit, then cut the flesh into thin slices. Cover the prepared tartes with marzipan with the apricot slices.
  • Carefully brush the topped apricot tarts with the prepared rum jam. Then bake the apricot tartes in a preheated oven at 220°C for 4-8 minutes until crispy.
  • Arrange the freshly baked apricot tarts on plates, decorate with icing sugar/dust sugar and pistachios, add one ice ball each with vanilla ice cream, decorate with mint and serve quickly.
