Apricots and lavender Mirliton … a simple and fresh dessert for these hot summer days.
Prepared with a short crust pastry shell d a filling perfumed with lavender flowers …. it is perfect for a snack or an after lunch in the garden.
Lavender flowers are optional … I used those from my garden.
Mirliton is a very versatile dessert and you can for example replace apricots with peaches … the choice is yours.
I recommend to store the apricots and lavender Mirliton in the fridge and letting it rest at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
You can find another tart with apricots here.
