Ingredients

How to make it

  • Roll out chilled dough to line a 30-cm tart pan. Arrange semi-sliced apples on the tart shell and sprinkle with some sugar. The sugar will caramelize when heated. Bake uncovered at 205c/400f for 20 minutes.
  • When the apples are soft, remove the tart from the oven and drain the excess water from the pastry shell.
  • To prepare the custard, beat eggs, sugar and cream until well mixed. Add lemon juice and vanilla. Pour this into the pastry shell, lifting the apples a little and bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until the custard sets.
  • Glaze with apricot jam and serve slightly warm.
  • Chef’s note: Pouring a little warm calvados on the tart turns it into Tart Normande Flambee

    I think we need to add an Ahmed scale of fork ratings, because he just keeps blowing by the five forks that are available! Greekgirl said it all. Maybe we can get you over here for some of the FoodNetwork competitions? Or a throwdown with Bobby Flay?

    What a great presentation - I have to say I have never seen an applie pie with the slices standing up like that...absolutely beautiful! And since apple pie is my husband's favorite, this is one I have to make soon...printed out and ready to go - now, the question is, can I make minelook as gourmet as your creation?!? Fantastic pie, Ahmed!

    Ah Ahmed, this is a thing of beauty! You are so talented. Our home is in the midst of renovations and has been for some time. I am so looking forward to having guests that I can serve this or any one of your lovely creations to, and tell them my Egyptian cooking friend gave me the recipe! Thank you so much for sharing of your time this way.
