Apricot Jam Tart (Crostata alla Confettura di Albicocche)

Delicious Apricot jam tart…..

Stefan's Gourmet Blog

Crostata is a very popular Italian fruit tart that is eaten both for dessert and breakfast. When we visited Jo of My Home Food That’s Amore, she gave us some goodies to take home including two jars of homemade apricot jam made by a friend of hers. Thanks, Jo! It is those jars that I used for this apricot crostata. Crostata is made with pasta frolla, sweet shortcrust pastry. I served it as a dessert with a scoop of ginger and honey ice cream, and it was absolutely wonderful. Especially with a glass of passito, a dessert wine made from dried grapes that in this case was made of 80% moscato and 20% gewürztraminer. The latter goes very well with ginger. Once you know how to make shortcrust pastry (which takes some experience to get it nice and flaky), crostata is easy to make.
