Apricot Bundles - Dessert RECIPE

Apricot Bundles - Dessert RECIPE

I just love these little summer presents.  These fresh apricots are bundled up in homemade pie crust pastry.  You should enjoy making pies and pastries before deciding to tackle this recipe - it can be tedious (I enjoy every detailed second!).

Printable Recipe

6 Apricots (washed & pitted)
double pie crust
sugar (2 teaspoons per "bundle" - there will be 12 bundles)
butter (1 dab per pastry - about 1/2 teaspoon)
vanilla sugar for sprinkling on top


Step 1:  Make my double pie crust recipe seen at the bottom of the "Making Pie Crust" post:  click HERE to view pie crust post
Step 2:  Cut the pie pastry into 12 equal chunks (see picture above). 
Step 3:  Take 1 chunk & roll out on a lightly floured surface.
Step 4:  Place half of one apricot (already washed & pitted) in the middle of the rolled out crust (see picture below) (the skin remains on and will bake down - you won't even know that it's in there)

Step 5:  Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar in the middle of the apricot (where the pit was), dot with a bit of butter & then gently close up the pie crust around the plum like a little purse (see picture below).

Step 6: Line a muffin tin (line each space) with parchment paper (I cut it into smaller pieces).  Place the "bundle" in the parchment lined muffin tin and repeat steps 3 to 5 until all apricot halves have been used up (there will be 12 Apricot Bundles total)

Step 7:  Sprinkle some vanilla sugar on top of each bundle.

Step 8:  Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 - 30 minutes or until desired brownness is achieved

Step 9:  Remove from the oven and remove each bundle by lifting up on the parchment paper.  Cool on a wire rack.

Features From The Toledo Museum of Art #20


by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo ARTmuseum_zpslnluvrca.jpg
Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - #20

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

“The Glade”
(Oil on canvas)
By Paul Cezanne (French 1839-1906)

Today is the second time that I am featuring an Impressionist work of art, which happens to be my favorite style (Impressionism).  This style of art began after the camera was invented and Impressionism captures split second, everyday life of normal people or simple everyday scenery.  If you were to quickly open and close your eyes - it's that fuzzy snapshot of that one second that is depicted in these masterpieces.

Paul Cezanne inherited his father's estate in Aix-en-Provence (southern France) and this is what he said about the beautiful countryside in that area: "There are treasures to be taken away from this country, which has not yet found an interpreter worthy of the riches it offers."
Paul Cezanne spent two decades painting the country scenes of that area.

ENJOY!
