Recipe Courtesy of: Cilla Kirt
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup slivered almonds, slightly toasted
6 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
6 fresh or canned apricot halves, pits removed
1/4 cup whole almonds, skin on
Confectioners' sugar, for garnish
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the almonds and the sugar in a food processor and grind until sandy. Add the butter and continue mixing then add the egg, vanilla, and the flour and mix until smooth.
On a floured work surface pass your rolling pin over the pastry just to flatten any ridges. Place it on a parchment paper lined sheet pan and cut out a 9-inch disk. Spread the almond mixture in the center of the tart leaving a 1-inch border. Firmly place the apricot halves into the almond mixture spacing them evenly around the tart. Dot the spaces between the apricots with the whole almonds.
Bake until golden brown on the top and puffy, about 30 to 40 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
