    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I was looking for an apricot tart recipe and came across this recipe -- the comments about the crust caught my eye, so I decided to use this recipe, only using fresh apricots instead of pears. I added 1 tsp almond flavoring with the jam & lemon juice. Also sprinkled toasted sliced almonds over crust before placing cut apricots. I forgot the cinnamon but it wasn't missed. The end result was an apricot tart that was exactly what I was craving! The crust has wonderful flavor and texture. It is such a simple recipe. It's a keeper -- just change the fruit for a different tart. I served this with Sweet Cream: 1/2 C sour cream, 2 tsp brown sugar mixed together and chilled for 2 hours before serving.
