Yield

1 - 10 inch tart

Time

25 minutes or less to assemble
25 minutes to bake
Total Time: 50 minutes

INGREDIENTS

1-7 oz box Odense Almond Paste, cut in half
10 tablespoons butter, room temperature, divided
1 1/4 cups flour, divided
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-5 oz package chopped apricots (Fruitlings)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Optional: Whipped cream

TOOLS & EQUIPMENT

10 inch tart pan
Box grater
Electric mixer

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a tart pan.
  2. Grate 1/2 roll of the Almond Paste into a mixing bowl.
  3. Beat 6 tablespoons of the butter with the Almond Paste until smooth. Add 1 cup of the flour and mix well until dough has the texture of small crumbs.
  4. Pour the crumbs into the tart pan. Press into an even thickness on bottom and up sides of pan, forming a crust. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. While crust is baking, grate the remaining half of Almond Paste and beat with the brown sugar until combined (mixture will look crumbly).
  6. Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition, until light and fluffy.
  7. Melt remaining 4 tablespoons of butter. Add to egg mixture with the extract, and beat until well combined.
  8. Sift the remaining 1/4 cup flour with the baking powder and salt, and beat into egg mixture until just combined.
  9. Sprinkle the apricots and chocolate chips on the bottom of the prebaked crust and cover with the creamed Almond Paste mixture.
  10. Bake for 25 minutes or until filling is lightly browned and firm. Cool completely on a wire rack. Great by itself or serve with whipped cream.
