French Apple Tart

Apple tart is a typical french dessert. With its crusty bottom, creamy filling and fruity top, it is perfect to serve with coffee after a nice dinner or with a cup of tea in the afternoon . If you are like my husband, you can eat it anytime :) of course.

Time: 120 minutes Level : Intermediate Yield: 6-8 servings


For the crust
225 gr all purpose flour
150 gr cold unsalted butter
1 egg
1 tsp confectioners sugar
1.5 tsp lemon juice
2 tbs water with ice
1/2 tsp salt

For the pastry cream
250 gr milk
2 egg yolks
50 gr granulated white sugar
10 gr flour
10 gr corn starch

For the apple purée
4 apple
1 tbs granulated white sugar
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tbs water
2 tbs apple liqueur

For the apple topping
4 apple
40 gr unsalted butter
1 tbs granulated white sugar
1 tbs water
1 tsp confectioners sugar

We advice to prepare the pastry cream just before its usage; because it solidifies quickly.


Preheat the oven to 190 C / 375 F. Beat the eggs with, lemon juice and water. Keep the mixture in the fridge for 30 min. Sift the flour, confectioners sugar and salt into a bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces & place it in the bowl.

Then with you finger tips, slowly rub flour & butter against each other, until the mixture looks like bread crumb.

Add the cooled egg-lemon mixture on it. Knead slowly until it becomes a soft dough. Then place the dough on the tart pan and spread it evenly over the bottom and top sides of the pan. You can also use a rolling pin.

Cool the pan around 20 mins in the fridge. (You can also prepare the dough one day in advance). Fill the tart pan with chickpea or beans to prevent the dough puffing up while cooking. Remove the beans after 15 min. Continue baking 5 - 10 more minutes until the crust is dry and light golden brown.

Apple purée
Peal the apples and cut them into small pieces. Cook them in a pan with sugar, water & lemon zest until the apples are softened and it runs out of water. Then smash it with the help of a spoon and add the liqueur.

Apple topping
Peal the apples and slice them very thin. In a pan, melt butter with granulated white sugar & water. Once it is boiling, add the apples. Cook it until the apple softens.

Pastry cream
Please see the following post for details. 

First place the pastry cream on top of the crust then add the apple purée. Place the apple slices like in the picture below. Then spread over the tart the sauce remaing from the apple topping and sprinkle the confectioners sugar over the tart. Grill it in the oven for around 5 min.

Bon appétit!

The Cheap Real Yeezys's sole, as mentioned earlier, comes white - with portions of it showing of at the very front and back ends of the shoe. It is quite a thick sole, by the way. For a tying mechanism, the Cheap Yeezys employs both a shoe-thread/hole mechanism and a 'flap' mechanism.
