Simple instructions for apricot tart with puff pastry.
Prepare puff pastry
Preheat the oven to 220-240 degrees Celsius hot air.
Roll out the puff pastry, next cut out round circles about 12 cm in diameter.
Line the puff pastry doughs on a baking tray with baking paper and prick them evenly on the top with a fork.
Cut the marzipan paste into even pieces, form thin plates.
Place the marzipan plates on the puff pastry.
Mix the rum with vanilla sugar and apricot jam and serve.
I like to use this combination to glaze the apricot tarts, which gives them their beautiful lustre and makes the jam caramelise easily, which is a real taste sensation!
Wash the apricots with cold water and dry them.
Cut the apricots in half and pit.
Prepare apricot topping
Cut the apricot halves into thin slices.
Cover the prepared tartes with marzipan with the apricot slices.
Bake apricot tart
Carefully brush the topped apricot tarts with the prepared rum jam.
Then bake the apricot tartes in a preheated oven at 220°C for 4-8 minutes until crispy.
Arrange and serve
Arrange the freshly baked apricot tarts on plates, decorate with icing sugar/dust sugar and pistachios.
Add one ice ball each with vanilla ice cream, decorate with mint and serve quickly.

3. Tips for Preparing Apricot Tart with Puff Pastry
The base for this cake is puff pastry. You can buy the dough fresh or frozen and it is also available in a gluten-free version!
You will also need fresh, sweet, ripe apricots, apricot jam, some rum, vanilla sugar and marzipan.
If your tart may become a dessert, I recommend fresh mint, powdered sugar, pistachio chips and a good vanilla ice cream as decoration elements.
The puff pastry needs a high initial temperature so that the dough flakes perfectly. You can reduce the temperature below 210°C after a few minutes.Puff pastry baking tip from chef Thomas Sixt
