Canned apricots make this golden, buttery tart a wonderful option any time of year. I brush them with preserves and brandy, then sprinkle on almonds for a bit of crunch.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Add egg yolk. Gradually add milk, tossing with a fork until a ball forms.
