Pie #1: Apricot Tart

Apricot Tart

Martha Stewart’s Everyday Apricot Tart

Baking Notes

Ultimately this was a pie fail, but boy, was it fun to look at.

I purchased a tart pan because I wanted those uniform edges, and also because Great British Bake Off. My first crust attempt resulted in serious shrinkage in the oven. The second crust resulted in shrinkage as well, but was ultimately still deep enough to hold most of the filling.

So why am I showing you a picture of this pie in my fridge instead of on a beautiful stylized plate? It is because my custard never firmed, so I ate this pie from a bowl like so much melted ice cream. Huzzah.

Tasting Notes

It was over-sweet for my taste, but the apricots were delightful little gems. More apricots, all the time.
