Another today's tarte!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Today's apple tarte.  The first thing that you'll note is the presentation, the layout of the apples.  My best yet, if I might state.  The shell was blind baked at 425F  for (EDIT) twenty minutes, then brushed with beaten egg white and baked for another twenty-five minutes.  Removed from the oven, it was allowed to cool, then filled with the apples, and baked for another hour at 425F.  Enjoy.

Four pounds of apples per nine inch tarte.  Two for the filling and two for slices.  Filling:

  1. apples diced to 1/4 inch
  2. <1/2C water
  3. 1/2C granulated sugar
  4. 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  5. juice 1/2 lemon

 

Pour water into saucepan and mix into it the sugar, vanilla and lemon juice.  Place heat on medium and add the diced apples.  Cook at medium heat for about fifteen minutes, until the pulp has softened slightly and the water evaporated.  Allow to cool before loading into the cooled tarte shell.

 

As to the slices, once they've been arranged atop the filling, brush with 3 TBS melted and unsalted butter and sprinkle with 1+ TBS granulated sugar on top.

 

The recipe is listed in Peterson's book entitled Baking.

Koko, I'm making a lazy persons apple tart today (apple slices on frozen puff), and won't look anywhere near as glorious as yours looks.

Please let me know how the puff pastry crust works out as I've heard that typical pre-made pie dough isn't worth a hoot!

@kokopuffs I cheated awhiles back when I had some leftover frozen puff pastry sheets and some apples ready to go south...

      

 

It wasn't pretty, but it got the job done, I mean dessert was passable for my dear husband,

especially when you add some ice cream to the top it

@kaneohegirlinaz: yours looks nice and rustic but if I could recommend an apple corer.  8)  And I really like my Victorio Apple Peeler with the suction base.  I mean, to peel four pounds of small/medium apples in less than five minutes and still have my wrist action intact...
