Fruit Tart

It is my friend Charly’s birthday on Tuesday and he asked for a fruit tart so I did my best to make one despite not having a tart pan, I think it turned out quite cute. I also halved the recipe below to make an individual tart for him. If you are not a fan of apricot, you can use a different flavor such as lemon for the glaze.
