Country Apricot Tart
Ingredients
  • 3/4  cup  flour
  • 1/3  cup  cornmeal
  • 2  tablespoons  sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 3  tablespoons  butter or margarine
  • 4 - 5  tablespoons  fat-free milk
  • 3  tablespoons  sugar plus 3 packets heat-stable sugar substitute, or 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg or ground cinnamon
  • 3  cups  sliced, pitted apricots or 3 cups frozen, unsweetened peach slices, thawed (do not drain)
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 2  teaspoons  fat-free milk
Directions

1. Grease and lightly flour a large baking sheet; set aside. for the cornmeal crust, in a medium bowl stir together 3/4 cup flour, cornmeal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter or margarine until the size of small peas. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cold fat-free milk over mixture; gently toss with a fork. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons more fat-free milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough is moistened (dough will be crumbly). Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 7 to 8 times or just until dough clings together. Form into a ball. On the baking sheet, flatten dough. Roll into a 12-inch circle. Set aside.

2. For filling, in a bowl stir together 3 tablespoons sugar plus sugar substitute or 1/3 cup sugar, the 3 tablespoons flour, and the nutmeg or cinnamon. Stir in the apricots or peaches and lemon juice. Mound the filling in center of crust, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold border up over filling. Brush top and sides of crust with the 2 teaspoons milk.

3. Bake in a 375 F degree oven about 40 minutes or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. To prevent overbrowning, cover the edge of the crust with foil the last 10 to 15 minutes of baking. Cool tart for 30 minutes on the baking sheet on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
