Who has never fall for a golden and crispy apple tart? This traditional and timeless desert that amazes both adults and kids at tea time or at the end of lunch or dinner. Here is the classic recipe of Délices & Gourmandises mouth-watering apple tart that you can easily reproduce at home.
• 8oz (225g) store-bought pie dough
• 1 large egg, beaten
• 4 Gravenstein apples or other sweet apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
• 2–3 tbsp granulated sugar
• pat of butter
-Preheat the oven to 220°C. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry out as thinly as you can. Use to line the tart pan, pressing it into the corners. Trim away the excess and prick the bottom all over with a fork. Line the tart crust with wax paper and fill with ceramic baking beans. Bake in the oven for 10mn, or until the edges are golden. Remove the beans and paper, brush the bottom of the crust with a little of the egg wash, and return to the oven for 2-3mn to crisp. Remove from the oven and set aside. Allow the tart crust to cool, but leave the oven on.
-Arrange the apple slices in the tart crust in an neat, overlapping design. Sprinkle with the sugar and dot with the butter. Bake in oven for 10-15mn, or until the apples begin to caramelize and the pastry is golden. Let cool. Remove from the pan and place on a plate to serve.
