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:
Cut out the puff pastry, place on baking paper and prick the top with a fork.
Cut marzipan and form it into balls, then thinly shape it.
Place the thinly formed marzipan balls on the centre of the puff pastry.
Cut the apricots into thin slices and place them on top of the marzipan.
Of course, all prepared tartes are covered with apricot slices!
Spread the apricot tarts with freshly mixed rum, vanilla sugar and apricot jam.
Bake the apricot tarts at 220°C hot air until crispy and arrange on plates.
Serve the apricot tarts as a dessert with vanilla ice cream, decorate with icing sugar, mint and pistachio chips.

Apricot tart recipe to bake yourself. Step by step photos of the preparation of an apricot tart. Super fast and simple recipe from star gastronomy with tips from the professional chef Thomas Sixt.
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.
