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
