FOR CRUST: Stir flour, 1/8 teaspoon sugar and salt in bowl to blend.

Preheat oven to 400F. Line baking sheet with parchment. Roll out
dough on floured surface to 11-inch round. Transfer to prepared
baking sheet.

FOR FILLING: Mix flour and 2 teaspoons sugar in bowl. Sprinkle over
crust, leaving 1 1/2-inch border. Place apricots cut side down on
crust, placing close together and leaving 1-1/2 inch border at outer
edge. Scatter cherries over apricots. Top with 4 tablespoons sugar.
Fold pastry edges up around apricots, pressing against apricots to
form scalloped border. Brush crust with butter; sprinkle with 1/2
tablespoon sugar.

Bake until crust is golden and fruit is tender (some juices from
fruit will leak onto parchment), about 1 hour. Remove from oven.
Using pastry brush, brush tart with juices on parchment. Gently slide
parchment with tart onto rack. Carefully run long knife under tart to
loosen (crust is fragile). Cool on parchment until lukewarm. Slide
9-inch-diameter tart pan bottom under tart, then place tart on
platter. Serve with ice cream or yogurt.
