Desert Recipe: Apricot Tart with Poppy Seeds

What would you think of a sweet apricot tart topped with crisp poppy seeds? Yes, you know those small black seeds that remain between your teeth when you try to offer your prettiest smile? The slightly tart taste of apricot is perfect for bringing summer onto the menu. If you want to balance the acidity, add a hint of sugar to the fruit. I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe.
