Preparation steps

1.

For the pastry: pile flour on the work surface, mix with sugar and salt and make a well in the center. Cut cold butter into small pieces and arrange around the well. Add an egg and about 50 ml (approximatley 1.7 ounces) of lukewarm water to the well and chop all ingredients with a knife until crumbly. Quickly knead to a smooth pastry and shape into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 

2.

For the topping: Whisk quark with sour cream, honey, eggs, vanilla seeds, lemon zest and ground almonds. Halve apricots and pit.  

3.

Roll out pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper and line tart pan with it, making an edge all around. Cover with parchment paper and weigh down with beans. Bake in preheated oven at 180°C (approximaely 350°F) for about 5-10 minutes. take out of the oven and remove paper and beans. Cool completely.  

4.

Arrange apricots on the pastry and spread cream on top, smooth and sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 30 minutes more. If cake browns too quickly, cover with aluminum foil. Remove from the pan and cool. Transfer to a plate and serve.
