Summer is here, really here! We are melting away in the streets of Paris as I write these lines. And while I did this, it occurred to me that baking on this hot hot day was probably not the best of ideas. On the other hand I now have a delicious apricot tart sitting on my counter, waiting for the vanilla ice cream I will most definitely add to it. Not to mention the fact that my friends will be delighted as dessert is ready for tonight’s dinner party! Overall, not too bad.
“Tarte aux abricots” is one of the many classics in French pastry, you can find it in almost every bakery or “boulangerie” (this is where they sell the bread here in France, and some other yummy treats!). It consists of a sablée dough, frangipane cream and apricots.
