Pear and Apricot Tart


120 gr of butter of room temperature

1/2 cup of almonds

1/2 cup of sugar

1 big egg

1 cup of flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of table salt

2 pears

1/2 cup of dried apricots

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

1/4 cup of peach jam

Directions to cook

  1. Heat the oven up to 180 0C. Oil the baking case of 20 cm in diameter with butter (it is preferable to have a drop bottom).
  2.  Grind almond and sugar in a chopper. Add butter and an egg. Beat up everything well. Add flour, baking powder, salt and knead again until the pastry is mild.
  3. Place the pastry into the baking case.
  4. Peel the pears and cut into 4 pieces. Put them in a small bowl together with dried apricots, lemon juice and one spoon of sugar. Mix well and put on the pastry. 
  5. Bake for 50-60 minutes until pears become soft and the center of the tart is solid. If the edges become too brown, cover with foil.
  6. Mix jam and 1 tablespoon of water in a little bowl. Spread the mixture on the tart with a brush. Wait until it cools down well to take it out of the pan.
