French Apple Tart

Leave a comment

I was asked to bring a dessert for an event and decided to try a new recipe. It was actually one that my brother recommended and a very traditional French one. It was a French Apple Tart or Tarte de Pommes a la Normande.

It starts with a basic pastry crust pressed into a tart pan (or pie plate if your tart pan is still packed). Then comes the frangipan which is butter, sugar eggs, apple brandy and a little flour with ground almonds. Then on top are precisely placed apple slices. This is baked and then apricot jelly is warmed and brushed on top for a lovely shine.

Mmmm, I cant wait for fall and apple season so I can make this again!
