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 Tart with puff pastry

The base for this cake is puff pastry. You can buy the dough fresh or frozen and it is also available in a gluten-free version!

You will also need fresh, sweet, ripe apricots, apricot jam, some rum, vanilla sugar and marzipan.

If your tart may become a dessert, I recommend fresh mint, powdered sugar, pistachio chips and a good vanilla ice cream as decoration elements.

The most important preparation steps and ideas are described below…

Cut out the puff pastry for the apricot tart
Prepare puff pastry for tart
Take the puff pastry out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before processing and keep it at room temperature. Then cut out the pastry, place it on baking paper and prick the top with a fork.
For the tart, place the marzipan thinly on the puff pastry
Place the marzipan on the puff pastry.
Roll out the marzipan thinly and place on the puff pastry circles. This is now a tasty bed for our apricots.

Place the raw apricot wedges on the tarts
Place the apricots on the tart
Cut the apricots into thin slices and place them on the marzipan. Depending on the size of the dough circles you can also put a star shape on top.
Spread the apricot tart with rum jam
Brush the apricot tart with jam
Important taste element: Before baking, spread the fruits with rum marmalade.

Then bake the apricot tarts at 220°C hot air crispy and arrange on plates. The high initial temperature is necessary for the dough to flake perfectly. You can reduce the temperature below 210°C after a few minutes.

2. Which Fruits also fit on the Tart?

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!
