Prep time

Cook time



  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup apricot jam
  • 1 cup apricots, sliced
  • ½ cup almonds, sliced
  • 2 tbsp apricot jam
  • 1 tbsp water


  • Preheat oven to 175°C.
  • In a food processor, combine the flour, cold butter, granulated sugar and cold water. Pulse into a coarse crumb.
  • Transfer the mixture onto a lightly floured surface and knead into a smooth dough. Shape the dough into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 mins.
  • Afterwards, on baking paper, roll the dough into a pizza-size circle, roughly 12 inches.
  • Spread the apricot jam evenly over the pastry, leaving a 3cm gap around the edges.
  • Arrange the sliced apricots on top of the jam in a decorative pattern. Sprinkle the sliced almonds over the apricots.
  • Bake the tart in the oven for 30-35 mins or until the crust is golden brown and the apricots are tender.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. In a microwave-safe small dish, heat the apricot jam and water for 20 secs in the microwave, stirring until smooth. Set aside.
  • Remove the galette from the oven and let cool for a few mins. Brush the glaze over the apricots and almonds.
  • Allow the galette to cool completely before serving with ice cream.
  • Tip: Sprinkle some additional sliced almonds on top for added crunch and visual appeal.
