Here is one of the tastiest Apricot Tart, The summer dessert that you’ll remember…

A cookie like crust, a layer of rich almond cream and on top, plump, juicy, slightly tangy apricots covered with a crunchy cloud of streusel.

Almond cream:

1 stick of soft butter, 1 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1 drop almond essential oil, 2 eggs, 1 tbs cornstarch.

Cream the butter with the sugar and essential oil. Add the almonds and cornstarch, and finally, the eggs.
