Remember, it needs to rest at least an hour in the fridge, during which time you can prepare the apples…

Filling:

  • Start by pealing the apples, it takes me 3 for a medium size tart tin, 9″/ 23cm, and halve
  • Core each half with a melon baller and slice thinly. Place in a bowl, sprinkle some lemon juice to prevent the apples from browning and some cinnamon powder, to taste

  • Cover and leave aside the pastry is ready, after blind baking
  • Brush some jam at the bottom of the pastry: use any you like, raspberry is colourful, apricot… today I’m using mango and start arranging your slices
