i dreamt up these little tarts the other day, the recipe came together as i was making them.
i added pistachio and dried lavender into the pastry for extra flavour.
they were really nice the flavours went really well together.
the shape reminds me of little Napoleon hats.
(1 and 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp) 200g plain flour
(8 tbsp 1 stick) 110g butter
3 heads of dried lavender
4 tbsp pistachios
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp water
add the lavender and pistachios into a food processor and chop until fine, then add the flour, sugar and pulse, then add the butter and combine until it resembles bread crumbs.
add the water a tbsp at a time until it comes together then tip out on to the work top and roll in to ball.
cover in cling film and put in the fridge for 30 mins.
you will need approx 15 apricots, half for the almond apricot puree and half to slice and place on top i got one punnet from the market and there was 16 in it.
peel the apricots,
to do this boil a pan of water, then score a cross on the skin of each apricot then add to the boiling water for 30 seconds. then place strait into a bowl of ice water.
the skin should peel straight off.
roll out the pastry and cut out circles.
place half the apricots in a food processor and add
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup ground almonds then place in the fridge.
slice the rest of the apricots in half.
preheat the oven to 180c 350f
spoon on the apricot almond puree and then add a half of a apricot on top and sprinkle on some pistachios.
pinch the pastry into a triangle shape.
bake for 15 minutes until golden.
