French Apple Tart
Sunday, May 26, 2013
As I've said before, I'm really not much of a dessert person, and I know some readers aren't too happy about that. There is one dessert, however, that I can't resist making and it's my attempt at the closest thing to La Petite Maison's Apple Tart. I have to admit, theirs still easily takes the prize but mine is pretty delicious too!
I got myself into a sticky situation on Friday night where my elegant dinner party of 10 slowly crept up to 17 and I had to cut the tart into 16 pieces (I sacrificed my piece), calling it a sample bite! Next time I'll have to make a bigger one...
YOU WILL NEED:
1 PACK (READY) PUFF PASTRY
4 APPLES (CORED, PEELED AND SLICED INTO 5MM PIECES)
3 TBSP BUTTER OR SOYA BUTTER
3 TBSP RAW SUGAR
1 EGG, BEATEN
Pre-heat the oven to 200 C or 400 F.
Roll out the puff pastry on a floured surface to approximately 5mm. Using a round plate or bowl, cut out a circle of about 10 inches in diameter. Chill for at least 10 minutes in the fridge.
Toss the apples with sugar and butter and microwave mixture for 2 minutes.
Place the apple slices around the the puff pastry, leave each piece slightly on top of the previous. Leave a centimetre plain on the outside of the pastry. Brush the outside (plain area) with the beaten egg.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. (The edges should have puffed up).
