Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch pie plate or tart pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar using a wooden spoon until smooth. Mix in the egg yolks one at a time, mixing well after each. Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl, and mix just until you can form a solid ball out of the pastry with no crumbs.
  3. Reserve some of the dough for a lattice top. On a floured surface, roll the rest of the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Press into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan. Pour the apricot preserves into the crust, and spread evenly. Roll out the remaining dough, along with any scraps from the crust, to 1/8 inch thick. Cut into strips, and lay across the apricot preserves in a crosswise pattern.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the pastry is golden brown.

This is good, but very, very sweet. Next time I make it, I will cut the sugar in the crust to 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup. Also, the crust was extremely hard to roll out, so I chilled it for 1 hour and it made it much easier to handle. I also gave the crust and lattice top an egg wash to help it brown. It worked beautifully!

Easy to make delicious to devour. I did alter the filling with ricotta,melted dark chocolate, Kalua, & pine nuts. Half cup ricotta cheese, 2 squares or melted chocolate (in dbl boiler), 3tbs of Kalua, 1/4 cup chopped pinenuts. Bake 325F for 35 to 40 min. & let cool. I would make sure the crust isn't too thick 1/8in.
