This apricot pastry is a French classic dessert (Oranais aux abricots). Usually, this dessert is made with puff pastry, pastry cream and apricots, but this time I made the easier version of this dessert, instead of pastry cream I created a soft ricotta and almons filling that makes this dessert east to make and maybe even more delicious.
