Sweet pastry:

  • 1 ½ cups of softened butter
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of ground almonds

Almond Cream:

  • 1 ½ cups of softened butter
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 + 1/2 egg
  • 2 tbsp of cornstarch
  • 1 ½ cups of almond powder

Rhubarb Compote:

  • 6 stalks of rhubarb
  • 1 ½ cups of sugar

Roasted Apricots:

  • 1 ½ cups of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of butter


  • For the dough, mix the butter and icing sugar in a food processor, then the egg. Add the flour and almond powder. Knead to obtain a homogeneous mixture, then form dough and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Prepare the almond cream. Mix the butter, icing sugar, and egg. Add the cornstarch, then the almond powder, mix to combine everything, and set aside in the fridge.
  • Prepare the compote: wash and cut the rhubarb into sections and brown them for 30 minutes in a saucepan with the sugar over medium heat, covered. Remove the lid and let cool to obtain dry compote.
  • Split the apricots in half, remove the pits and place them in a baking dish. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and evenly add the butter in knobs. Bake for 20 minutes at 310°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, place a pastry circle and roll the dough into it. Bake blind for 10 minutes at 345°F.
  • Remove the dough from the oven, and spread the almond cream. Bake again for 15 minutes at 320°F.
  • Take out the pie, add the rhubarb compote, and then nicely arrange the still-warm roasted apricots.
  • Serve and enjoy your dessert!
