Giada's family dinners - apricot crostata

This week I'm featuring food from Giada's Family Dinners

I wasn't expecting much from this recipe. It's basically pie dough and apricot jam. But I was pleasantly surprised, it ended up being very good. Although I have to admit I cheated a little. I had some pate brisee on hand, so I used that instead of following the instructions for the dough from the recipe. The dough baked up very flaky, and the jam thickened nicely - it almost tasted like a fruit danish.

Great looking dessert- nice balance of fruit and pastry- sweet and tartness creating a unique taste.
