ABC - Croûte d’abricots with Lavender & Honey

The August recipe for the ABC club was the Croûte d’abricots with Lavender & Honey. Although I left out the lavender, it still tasted awesome. So awesome in fact, that I baked this recipe twice: one time with apricots and one time with raspberries.

First time: made half the recipe in a 6" round pan

With only one egg, the battery was very thick.

Added another egg

Raspberry version. Bon Appetit!

Final thoughts/tips:

  • Hubby liked this recipe but it wasn't his favorite. He didn't think it was sweet enough. When I baked it again, I upped the amount of honey. Still, he gave it an 8 out of 10 rating.
  • I enjoyed this tart a lot. I like desserts that are not overly sweet. The almond flavor was very good, the juicy apricots were a great combination.
  • Of course, I've made some tweaks to the recipe. You can find my list of ingredients below.
