To make the pastry, place the flour, nuts and sugar in a bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips.

Roll out the dough to fit an 8 to 9-inch quiche pan.
Chill while you prepare the filling.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Drain the apricots and puree them in a blender or strain through a sieve.
Mix in the dried apricots, almonds and egg yolk.
