Get baking these delicious Apricot Tarts. Recipe devised by Kate Morris and Sally Brown.

45 minutes This should take about 45 mins

You will need:

  • 12 tinned apricot halves
  • 250g fresh puff pastry
  • 2 dessert spoons apricot jam
  • 4 teaspoons raspberry jam

Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.

What to do:

Step 1

Before cooking, wash your hands and put an apron on.
Weigh and measure the ingredients.

Step 2

Place some baking paper on to a baking tray.

Step 3

Count out the apricot halves and put them onto kitchen paper to dry. While they are drying prepare the bases for your tarts.

Step 4

Sprinkle a small amount of flour on the mat then roll out the puff pastry into a large rectangle. (It needs to be large enough to cut out 4 big circles). Cut out the circles with a large circular pastry cutter (if you don't have one you could use a cup or glass that measures about 10cm across).

Step 5

Next use a small circular cutter (or cup or glass measuring about 8cm across), press this down into the large pastry circles but try not to cut all the way through. Put these 4 pastry circles onto the baking paper.

Step 6

Using a pastry brush, brush about ½ teaspoonful of apricot jam onto the smaller circle in the middle of the pastry.

Step 7

Place half an apricot in the centre of each circle. Then, asking a grownup to help you, use scissors or a table knife to cut up the rest of apricot halves into small pieces and place around the edge of the apricot half leaving a circle of pastry all around

Step 8

Finally, drizzle some raspberry jam over the top of the apricot pieces. You will need to ask a grown up to help with this part. Place in a pre-heated oven at 200°C fan/220ºC/Gas 7 for 10 - 15 minutes until the pastry is risen and golden.

Step 9

Serving suggestion: Serve 1 each with yoghurt and any leftover apricots.
