In my dreams, I see a big counter, full of pastries and pies!

And in these visions I have, I see this tart!

Apricot Rhubarb Almond Tart

It’s an Apricot Rhubarb Almond Tart.

Let me explain!

Almond cookie-like crust, sliced and layered apricots on the bottom, topped with a insanely delicious almond cream, covered in rhubarb ribbons and a crumble topping!

I bake a lot, as you can tell from this website, and this is probably one of the most delicious things I’ve ever baked!

The flavors here have got me HOOKED on this tart!

Apricot Rhubarb Almond Tart

I knew it was going to be great even before I took a bite into it. And when the bite finally happened after 2 hours of photographing, it was even better than I had expected (or maybe I was super hungry after starring at this tart through my camera lenses for 2 hours!)


About my bakery. I see this tart in a beautiful display, on top of a cake stand, taking the prime spot! What a show off!

And when you get to try this tart, you will want to come back for more. Seriously, I’m experiencing it right now. I keep wanting to go to my fridge and steal another slice, but I am trying to stay strong. (ps. update 2 hours later: pie is gone!)

Now, it might take me a few years (or decades) to get my bakery. But I am willing to wait. I am willing to work hard so one day I will be able to actually physically stare at the display of treats I see in my head, in my dreams.

And, you know what? I am not even upset about waiting. It’s not like I’m sitting around waiting for some opportunity to fall on my lap. I am giving my whole soul to this baking thing! I put everything I have into my dreams! And, after all, it’s not about the destination, anyway… it’s all about the JOURNEY!

And I am having a hell of a time on my journey! I look forward to waking up everyday because I have so much I want to accomplish!

Apricot Rhubarb Almond Tart

Yesterday, my husband Brian said to me that the lottery was $300 million or something. “What do you think we would be doing if we won that money?”, he asked me.

I was sitting on my computer, editing pics. I didn’t even have to think for a second. My answer was: “I’d be doing exactly what I am doing right now.”

His answer: “Ok, but you’d be doing it in Hawaii. Can you work from a yacht?”


Yes, Brian, we can move to Hawaii, I don’t know about the yacht though.

That’s when I realize how happy I am. I couldn’t care less about money. My whole heart is in this thing right here.

Would it be nice to have a lot of money? Of course, I’d buy a better camera, have a bigger studio, not have to work for someone else. Money would give me freedom and resources. But no amount of money would ever change my passion and my drive.

Freedom and resources, or lack of them, are no excuse for me. I am the one who makes the resources, I am the one who makes the time, and I am the one who makes myself free and available to work on my passion.

Nothing that is great can be built without a tone of work. And I am ready, bring it on!

Almond Crust
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 apricots
  • 1 bunch rhubarb
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter softened (1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup almond flour about 4 oz.
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Crumble Topping
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


Almond Crust
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter for about 1 minute. Add powdered sugar and cream for another 2 minutes at medium speed.
  • Add almond flour and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Add vanilla extract and egg. Mix on medium speed for 30 seconds to incorporate egg. Scrape bowl and make sure egg has been fully incorporated.
  • Add all-purpose flour and mix on low briefly or with a spoon to combine ingredients. Mix just until flour has been fully incorporated.
  • Wrap dough in plastic wrap and press it lightly into a small disk. Leave it in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  • Cream butter in the bowl of an electric mixer, at medium speed for 1 minute.
  • Add brown sugar and cream for another minute, until mixture is lightened and fluffy.
  • Add almond flour. Beat on medium until incorporated.
  • Add all-purpose flour and salt and mix.
  • Add egg and almond extract and run mixer on medium speed until all ingredients are incorporated and mixture is creamy.
Crumble Topping
  • Mix butter, sugar and flour with your hands, or with a fork. Mixture should be quite loose, not very wet. You don’t want it to have a lot of butter in the mixture. Pinch a small piece of crumble with your hands, if crumbs stick together, you’re good to go. If they are still falling apart, add maybe half a tablespoon of butter at a time, until you obtain a crumble that is holding itself together, but isn’t too wet.
  • Place crumble in the fridge while you assemble the pie.
  • To assemble
  • Sprinkle some flour on the counter. Remove dough from the fridge. Roll dough out on the floured counter.
  • Now, mind you, the tart dough is very crumbly and you might have a hard time keeping it from breaking. It’s supposed to be this way, there’s no elasticity to it, because it’s supposed to be a cookie-like crust.
  • Once you’ve sort of rolled your dough out to a 10 inch circle, transfer it to your tart pan. Remember, it’s totally ok if it breaks all over the place. That’s the beauty of this dough, you can simply press the dough down slightly with your fingers and patch pieces together.
  • Once you’ve pressed the dough down the whole bottom and sides of the tart pan, trim off excess with a pairing knife, running it over the top, so there is no dough hanging.
  • Place tart pan in the freezer while you prepare the rest.
  • Now would be a good time to make the filling, while your tart crust chills.
  • Remove skin from apricots and slice them thinly. Set aside.
  • With a small pairing knife, cut long rhubarb ribbons lengthwise. The ribbons should be thin, long and flat. Set aside. I like to organize mine per color, so I can have a nice ombre effect when placing rhubarb ribbons on top of pie.
  • Now you can start to assemble the pie.
  • Remove tart crust from the freezer.
  • Place apricots on the bottom of the crust.
  • Spread filling evenly over apricots with the help of a spatula. Try to get the filling as even and smooth as you possibly can.
  • Lay rhubarb ribbons on top of filling, trimming excess off, so there’s no rhubarb hanging off.
  • Place small amounts of the Crumble Topping around the edges of the pie. On top of the crumble, arrange slices of almonds like you see in the pics above.
  • Carefully, stick assembled pie in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Start to pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  • Bake pie for 25-35 minutes.
  • If the top is browning too fast, you want to cover it with foil so the bottom has a chance to bake.
  • I like to bake my pie on the bottom rack of the oven so the bottom bakes, because the top tends to bake faster.
  • Remove from the oven. Let it cool all the way, place in refrigerator for 2 hours until chilled.
  • Slice and serve.
  • Pie will keep well for about 4-5 days, covered in the refrigerator.

    I love the flavor combination of this gorgeous dessert! Rhubarb is one of my favorites and I look forward to it every spring. I would love to have my own bakery also, but if my hubby asked if we could live on a yacht, well, I’d probably say yes. lol 🙂

    This looks so incredibly pretty and sounds delicious as well. I don’t think I have seen apricot and rhubarb together but I can imagine they work well. Yum!

  6. 5 stars
    Delicious. However, I suspect the measurements for the crumble are at least double what’s needed, maybe even more than that based on the picture. I made one change that really looks and tastes great, probably because my backyard rhubarb was late and I had a fridge full of blueberries. I cooked a handful of blueberries and spread the compote (no added sugar) in the center of the finished tart, then topped that with a decorative handful of fresh blueberries. (Prep was about an hour… grinding almonds, peeling apricots, slicing quite a few stalks of rhubarb, the chilling times, etc.)

  7. I made this tart and it was delicious and beautiful. In MN you can’t find fresh apricots this time of the year so I bought big dried ones and soaked them in boiling water for a few hours to rehydrate them. It turned out great!
