default Alsace Apple Tart Recipe

Post by Guest on 12th November 2010, 8:01 pm

I just translated this recipe, that I use a lot at this time of year, for a friend from German and thought you might like to try it yourselves. It tastes great :biglick:

Alsace Apple Tart
Ingredients for a 26cm pastry dish (spring release cake tin if you have one)

200g Plain flour
100g Butter
1 Egg yolk
30g Sugar
Pinch of salt
2 Dessert spoons cold water
**************
500-750g Cooking Apples (ones that keep their shape)
Juice of half a lemon
**************
100g Sugar
3 Eggs
Vanilla Pod (or Essence)
1/8 Cream

Rub the flour, butter, egg yolk, sugar, salt and water into a dough. Cover and place in a fridge for two hours.
Peel, quarter and remove the cores of the apples. Then partially cut through the quarters lengthwise and brush completely with the lemon juice.
Preheat the oven to 200deg C.
Roll out the pastry (about 4mm thick) and line the pastry dish then prick the base with a fork. Arrange the apple quarters in the dish. Bake on a low shelf for about 35 minutes.
Whisk the eggs and sugar together until creamy (I also add the egg white left over from the pastry) then fold in the vanilla and cream. Pour over the apples and bake for a further 25-35 minutes.
Allow to cool in the dish before moving onto a wire cooling rack. Allow to cool thoroughly for a set before serving.

…and for those on a diet… If cut into 12 slices each slice has 265 calories! donotfeed

PS Next time I bake it I'll take a picture.

Many fruits get this delicious treatment in Alsace (i.e, baked into a custard tart). I love the pear version - use 3 pears, halved, cored and fanned, arranged stalk end inwards, as an alternative to the apples.

Apricots work too. I am still trying to get enough home-grown ones ready at once to make one though !
