I had a wonderful vacation!
But I have to admit…. Once home, I couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen and bake.
So Sunday morning, after a quick trip to the grocery store, I took some time to leisurely make this beautiful, amazingly delicious Fresh Apricot Almond Creme Tart.
Oh the wonderful smell while it baked…
The juicy, ripe apricots drizzled with honey made my heart happy.
And watching Hubby enjoy it….
I found a recipe for an Apricot Pistachio Tart that I used as a baseline to create this recipe I think is well worth saving!
I summoned enough willpower to enjoy only a bite, but oh that bite…
This is such a special treat. I hope you will try it and enjoy it or share with someone you know that loves fresh apricots.
Apricots are one of Hubby’s faves, so I enjoyed making it for him after enjoying a week away at GFC. A little “thank you” of sorts.
After baking this, I whipped up some cookie dough and made a fresh caprese pasta salad.
Kitchen fix complete.
Life is good.
Home sweet home.
