Crisp Apricot Fruit Tart

Crisp Apricot Fruit Tart Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 TBSP raw sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 7 sheets phyllo dough, thawed if frozen
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 7 apricots, halved
  • 1 cup assorted raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400° with rack in the center. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, 1/2 cup sugar, salt, egg, and ground almonds. Reserve.

2. Combine cinnamon and remaining 2 TBSP sugar. Unroll the phyllo; transfer 1 sheet to the prepared baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush very lightly with some of the melted butter; sprinkle with some cinnamon-sugar. Layer, brush, and sprinkle remaining 6 sheets phyllo on top (don''t worry if phyllo tears). Brush edges with any remaining butter. Crimp edges to create a border.

3. Spread ricotta filling in prepared tart. Scatter the apricots, berries, and sliced almonds over the top. Bake until the crust is golden brown (35-45 minutes). Serve warm or at room temperature.
