Individual Fruit Tarts

Short pastry rolled out to about 1/8-in thickness
12 tb Granulated sugar
2 tb Granulated sugar
Apricot jam; warmed
Fresh fruit such as Golden Delicious apples, Pears and so forth
1/2 Lemon, juice only

Preheat oven to 425degrees. Roll out the pastry and cut circles about 5-inches across using a cookie or biscuit cutter. Gather into a ball the dough remaining from the cutouts, roll again and cut additional circles.
Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of sugar, stack with waxed paper between and refrigerate, or better, freeze.

Prepare the fruit by peeling, coring, slicing thinly and tossing with lemon juice. Warm the jam using 1 tablespoon or 2 of water if needed. Taking a disk of dough, turn the edges up as though making a small pizza. Spread a little apricot jam over the pastry. Put a few slices of overlapping fruit on, paint with more apricot jam, sprinkle with a tablespoon of sugar and dot with butter. Bake for 15 minutes. The pastry edges should be golden brown.
