I just love stone fruit, and I hate waiting for it in the produce department until summer or fall. So for now, I love using frozen or canned stone fruits like apricots and peaches for desserts like this Apricot Blueberry Puff Pastry Tart.
This past week I noticed our fridge was not doing so hot. The compressor was staying on all the time, and the inside of the fridge was starting to get warmer not matter what we tried. It was several years old. We’d already replaced the ice maker and the door baskets. The shelves were cracking and the new door baskets were cracking again. Plus, we bought it when we had a rent house, so it didn’t match any of our appliances.
So, this weekend, we went to the store and got a new one. It’s one of those french door fridges with the freezer on the bottom. My biggest complaint for our old fridge was that it was a side by side and you could not fit a frozen pizza in the freezer to save your life! I hated it. This one holds pizzas! And…we found it on clearance! It was delivered on Sunday, and I’ve already covered it in my children’s drawings and photos as usual.
I had to clean out the fridge on Saturday night in preparation, so I did a lot of baking with things like frozen puff pastry as the freezer was still good. I threw away about 90% of everything in the fridge section because I just didn’t trust the fridge temp to keep things safe for the past few days.
One of the things I made with the puff pastry was this Apricot Blueberry Pastry Tart. OMG! These things are so simple to make, and the taste is amazing!
Defrost your puff pastry like normal and cut it into rectangles. You can do squares and just use one apricot half per square, but I am an apricot-a-holic, so I made rectangles with two apricot halves per rectangle. In one sheet of puff pastry, I was able to get 5 rectangles, but you can get 9 squares easy, too.
I used canned apricots in fruit juice. I try to avoid the ones in heavy syrup. I also used fresh blueberries, which I had to get out of the fridge.
On each rectangle just place two apricot halves. Then sprinkle some fresh blueberries all around.
Next, I had to use up my eggs from the fridge, so I beat one egg and went around the edges of each tart with it.
Take about 1-2 tablespoons of raw sugar and just sprinkle it all over the tarts.
Then pop them in the oven at 400 F degrees for about 20 minutes or until the edges of the puff pastry are a golden brown.
Let them cool for a couple of minutes and then devour!
So easy and delicious and full of my favorite fruits! If you have leftovers, keep them in the fridge for a couple days.

That looks SO good and really very simple! I love easy yummy stuff. I love how you used halves of apricots and not just tiny pieces and parts!
Looks absolutely delicious! This tart contains both mine and my husband’s favorites? I love blueberry and he loves apricot.
Well…this made my mouth water! I love it and I love that it’s not super hard to do! I’m making this soon!
This looks amazing. I can’t believe how easy it is to made. I can’t wait to give your recipe a try.
Oh yum! I know this would be a big hit in my house! It looks delicious!
THis looks sooooo amazing!
Fresh fruit belies the fact that this tart’s buttery puff-pastry crust is store-bought, making it a treat to prepare and eat.
You had me at pasty puff! Yummy recipe! I’ll have to make this one day!
I haven’t had puff pastry in ages! I used to work in a bakery/pastry shop so they were hard to resist.
This looks like an interesting combo. I never had apricot and blueberries together I wonder what it would be like in a pastry?
That looks delicious! I grow blueberries in the garden. This would be a great way to use some of them!
Those look delicious! I need to give them a try. Puff pastries are so delicious!
This puff pastry tart looks so tasty!! I definitely want to give it a try–so perfect for spring!
Yum those look amazing. We ended up parting with our fridge because our rental had a fridge. We didn’t have any where to store it. Next time, I will buy a larger side by side fridge. We have a standard fridge and it is TOO small and is driving me bonkers.
This looks really good. I have to try to make these for my family!
These look so yummy! I love blueberry so much, one of my favorite fruits!
If only I could reach through the screen and take hold of one of those, they look absolutely delicious!
This looks delicious!! I love the colours and the flavour combos!! I can’t wait to try and make it!
These look amazing. So yummy and easy to make. They would be perfect for an Easter Sunday brunch
That looks a lot easier than I expected it to be. It sure looks like you spent a lot longer on that. Yum!
Oh my… your pictures makes me drool over the tarts. I copy already your recipe and now I am dying to try it. Will check out the ingredients. Hopefully I can perfectly make it.
ut-oh! this is not good that I know how to make this now… I’m a HUGE fan of pastries (all kinds) it’s my weakness, I just can’t say no to : ) I will have to give this a try, my tastebuds thank you already!
Oh my goodness! You making this preggy mama drool here. Can’t remember the last time I ate apricots. This will work so well with a scoop of ice cream.
After reading your blog post, I am now craving for the tart. It looks amazing and apricot seems juicy. In addition to that, the fruits are nutritious too.
I looked for those pastry shells at the store today and it seems my stoore doesn’t have them. I was a little bummed because these look delicious.
