                         puff pastry  -- frozen
                         pastry cream
    2      cups          milk
      1/2  cup           sugar
           pinch         salt
                         vanilla bean  -- split
    5                    egg yolk
      1/3  cup           cornstarch
                         Glaze
 
 Roll out little circles of pastry leaving the two edges slightly thicker than the
sides. Sprinkle with sugar.
 Cook the pastry cream ingredients until it boils and is thick. Cool.
 Place a generous tablespoon or so of cream on the pastry dough and two apricot
halves so it looks like two egg yolks.
 Bake in 350F oven for 35 minutes.
 Brush pastry and apricots with a nice sweet apricot glaze. The baking takes the
sweetness out of the fresh apricots so you need this final step.
