I was going to say playing with my food which would of been true too. This is my latest experiment. I don’t really even know if I can call it a tart as it ended up rather pie like. I used a gluten free crust recipe from here http://www.elanaspantry.com/gluten-free-tart-crust/ (side note I didn’t have almond four so I used the almond meal from trader joes)If you eat gluten free you need to know about her. Her brownies are amazing! any way I digress (as usual) I got her crust recipe and I wanted to make this “tart” that I had in my mind that didn’t have pastry cream but was more like fruit in a jam on a crust. I found a couple of examples but none like the one I saw in my head.
So this morning as I was getting in to some serious cooking I decided to try this. I boiled some chopped apples, dried apricots, water, and some raw sugar. I didn’t use measurements so I can’t give you any. when it was a good thick consistency I poured it into the crust. It was not beautiful and I”m on a french kick of making life beautiful so I sliced an apple and a half very thin and laid it on top. I then mixed some jam (we had nectarine) and water and poured it over the apples. I sprinkled with a little more raw sugar and baked at 350 until it looked done.
We have not eaten it yet as I am making dinner as I type but it dose look yummy.
