On a well-floured work surface, roll dough into a 12-inch circle. Fold in half and transfer to a 10-inch tart pan. Press dough into pan, then press off any excess dough and freeze the shell.
For the filling:
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Be sure to scrape down the bowl and beaters at least once. Add eggs, one at a time, and blend thoroughly. Remove from the mixer and stir in flour, nuts, and chocolate; set aside. Remove the tart shell from the freezer and spread apricot jam over the surface of the tart. Place the nut filling in large spoonfuls over the jam and spread it out evenly.
Place the tart on the lower shelf of the oven and bake 15 minutes. Lower oven heat to 350° and transfer the tart to the middle shelf; bake 15 to 18 minutes until the tart is golden and firm to the touch. Remove from oven and cool completely.
