1 egg beaten
loz ground almonds
2-3 oz "no soak" dried apricots, finely chopped

Set oven to 375°F or Mark 5. Mix the apricots and raisins with the rum and leave to stand for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile roll out the pastry thinly on a floured surface and cut into 12-15 rounds with a pastry cutter. Line 3 inch greased patty or bun tins with the pastry rounds. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg, ground almonds and spices. Stir in the rum-soaked fruit. Place a spoonful of the filling in each pastry case and bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool the tarts in the tins for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack until cold. Serve warm or cold dusted with a little icing sugar.
