Apricot – Rasberry Tart page 145 

I made this one in the South of France when visiting my mother in law.  We do not get those lovely fruits here so I took the recipe with me in case I got a chance to make it.  I have never before baked in this much heat before, our summer is arround 50°F now the heat was close to 90°F.  No at easy as one would think the butter would not stay cold very long.  It is always harder to work in other people’s kitchen but I did find a scale and other items I needed.

The recipe calls for stale Brioch but I used a stale quatre-quarts bought at Carrefour.  I was not sure how to arrange the apricots they did not stand upright, but I think I did ok.

We had this one with whipped cream and it looked very delicious and perfect for summer.  I got great reviews on the crust.  In France you just buy the crust specially for the quische which is no where as good as making it yourself.  If I was to do it again I would use the almond cream on page 432.  I found this to be a bit dry and not as sweet as I would have liked it.  I would have to go to France again for the apricots and raspberries so not a bad deal.

    Love that you were able to make this in France – how fun ! We also thought it was a bit on the dry side compared to usual fruit tarts but that did not slow down the consumption LOL. I will definitely revisit the almond cream next time, while wishing I could prepare it all in France 🙂 So fun that you shared how the French typically just purchase the pastry ready made. And it was pretty crazy hot here in the Philadelphia PA area when I had to turn the oven on for this one – that part was not so fun but the results were so delicious I quickly got over that 🙂

    How nice that there are others who go on vacation and bring recipes to cook or bake while away! That’s what I love about this group…we are kindred spirits! Your tart looks gorgeous…I brushed apricot jam on the bottom of my crust because it just seemed to need something! Delicious!
