apricot tart

doesn't look like much in the picture, but it was outrageously delicious!! i made a crust similar to the one used in the ridiculously delicious healthy pecan pie recipe, then made a mixture of 1 cup of almond meal, one egg, and a pat of coconut oil (butter or earth balance would work fine here too) in the cuisinart, and spooned it on top. then, on top of that i spread some apricot compote given to by my friend sandra. the apricots came fresh from her neighbor's tree. cooked in the sun oven for about an hour - et voila! a french apricot frangipane gallette!

$10 brand new sun oven

today i scored a global sun oven brand sun oven (the swanky kind) - brand new in the box - for $10 at an estate sale. now i can cook rice and beans at once, or dessert and dinner at the same time. miracles can happen...
