These tarts are one of my favorite dinner party desserts. They are delicious, incredibly easy to prepare, can be made in advance, and with a scoop of vanilla bean or cinnamon ice cream they strike the perfect balance between being elegant and also rustic and homemade looking (which is something that I am always striving for). You start by cutting rounds of frozen puff pastry, on top of which you place about a tablespoon of cinnamon sugar. Add a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg to each, and then top with three fresh apricot halves. Bake at 400º for fifteen to twenty minutes until the pastry has puffed, and is nicely golden brown. Brush the tops of the baked tarts with a generous amount of hot, strained, apricot jam (preferably homemade), and sprinkle with some lightly toasted, sliced almonds. These tarts are beautiful, have the perfect amount of sweetness, and the interplay of textures between the flaky puff pastry, soft apricots, crunchy almonds, and creamy ice cream is magical. Everyone loves them, and no one has to know how incredibly simple they are to make. Enjoy!
