How To Make French Apple Tart

By on January 20, 2014

Today I want to show you how to make some really delicious French Apple Tart. There is nothing more classic then some French apple tart. The French have really perfected the art of the tart, they are beautiful, they are elegant and the recipe that I am going to share with you will have your friends thinking that you bought this tart from a fancy French bakery.

List of Ingredients

300 grams of flour

60 grams of sugar

50 grams of cold butter

2 egg yolks

600 grams of apples

200 ml of apple juice

Some cinnamon

50 ml of apricot jelly

The first thing that you want to do is to make your tart shell. In a food processor you are going to combine flour, sugar and salt. Make sure to give that just a quick pulse, then you are going to add some very cold butter and pulse it up just until a course meal develops.

In a separate bowl you are going to mix together egg yolks and water. Whisk that up just until they are combined and add that to your dough just while your machine is running.

You will start to see a dough beginning to form. Once the dough is formed you are going to take it out of the food processor and press it into a disk shape.

Make sure to wrap it in plastic and refrigerate it for 30 minutes. While your dough is hardening up you are going to make your apple compost. To make your compost you are going to put your apples in a big frying pan, you are going to add some apple juice and some water, sugar, cinnamon and a little bit of lemon zest.

You are going to cover your pot and let that simmer for about 10 minutes. Once the liquid has evaporated you want to go in with a fork and just and mash those apples up. What you are doing is basically to create an apple sauce. It will be a little chunky at first but as it begins to cook down and you mash it more it will turn into a beautiful apple sauce.

It is now time to slice all your apples for the third layer, the secret here is to get those apples paper thin, you do not need any fancy equipment, in fact I think that it is better to cut those out by hand even if it takes a little bit of work.

It is now time to take the dough, roll it up and place it into the tart shell. Once your dough is all in your shell you are going to take your cool apple compost and spread it along the bottom of the tart shell just until you have a single layer.

The final steps involves placing the apple slices on top of the tart, this is a little tricky but you can be creative and place them in any shape you want as long as the consistency is good.
