Method

Cook some Savarin paste or ordinary Brioche paste in buttered tartlet moulds. When cooked, hollow out the centres from the top leaving a fairly wide border.

Coat the insides with Royal Icing Praline and place them to dry in a slow oven; fill the centres with Frangipane Cream flavoured with Hazelnut Pralin.

On top of each Croûte place a whole stoned apricot poached in Maraschino flavoured syrup and surround each apricot with small halves of glacé cherries and diamonds of angelica.

Serve accompanied with Maraschino-flavoured Apricot Sauce.
