So as promised 2 posts earlier, here comes the Tarte fine aux pommes.
This recipe is a good start for beginners in the world of baking. It is so simple to make. The hardest part is if you were to cut the apples manually unless you have a mandolin that cuts the apple finely for you.
For 2 persons (my hsuband thinks it’s for 1)
Prep: 5 min – baking: 20 min
½ roll of good puff pastry
1 nice apple- medium to big size, peeled
1 tbsp of sugar (preferably golden)
1 tbsp of powdered sugar
2 tbsp of butter, cubes
Preheat the oven at 200 degrees C
On a baking paper roll the puff pastry in a fine layer. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of sugar, place the fine apple cuts in an artistic way (understand not messy), followed by the cubes of butter.
Bake for 15 min or until cooked through. Sprinkle the powdered sugar and put the tart bake in the oven on “grill” for 5 minutes to caramelize the edges.
Serve at room temperature with vanilla ice cream or just as is.
I glazed mine with apricot jam but it’s totally up to you.
Like any recipe with puff pastry, this tart is best eaten the same day.
Note (update on feb 7th, 2013): here is another fine apple tart looked even more caramelized.
