Form a large ring of flour on your work surface. In the center of

Add all the water, press to mix in the water, then work the dough
into a ball with the palms to an equal consistency having no dry spots.
Roll out one 10-inch tart shell on the floured work surface. Chill
about half an hour.
Place the shell into a pie pan, or tart pan and mold a piece of
350 F preheated oven for 15 -
minutes until golden brown.
Combine jam, sugar and water in a heavy saucepan. Mix well, bring
to a boil, then simmer until clear.
Cut each peach into eight sections and arrange snugly in baked tart
shell. Lightly brush apricot glaze over all peaches and serve.
