Prepare glaze

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!

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
Cut out the puff pastry for the apricot tart
Take the puff pastry out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before processing and keep it at room temperature. Then cut out the pastry, place it on baking paper and prick the top with a fork.
