Tarte Aux Pommes (Apple Tart)















Trans-fat Free, Low Sodium


12 ounces puff pastry
2 pounds apples
or granny smith, golden delicious
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
50 grams sugar
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


On a lightly floured surface, carefully roll out the dough to a 12 inch (30 cm) circle.

Transfer the dough to a 10½-inch (27 cm) black tin tart pan with a removable bottom.

Carefully press the pastry into the pan and up the sides, trying not to stretch it.

Trim the overhang, leaving about a 1-inch (2½ cm) extending over the rim.

Tuck this overhang inside the pan, pressing gently against the side to create a sturdy, double-sided shell.

(If you build the pastry a bit higher than the height of the pan, you will have less problem with shrinkage)

Chill for at least 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃) F (190C).

Prick the bottom of the shell with the tines of a fork.

Carefully line the shell loosely with heavy-duty foil, pressing well into the edges so the pastry does not shrink while baking.

Fill with pie weights, or dry rice or beans - making sure you get all the way into the edges - to prevent shrinkage.

Bake just until the pastry begins to brown around the edges and seems firm enough to stand up by itself (about 20 minutes).

Meanwhile, peel and core the apples.

Cut each apple into 12 even wedges.

Toss them in a bowl with the lemon juice to prevent discoloration.

In a Iarge skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat.

Add the apples, sprinkle on the sugar, and sauté, shaking the pan from time to time so the apples cook evenly.

Cook until lightly browned on all sides (about 15 minutes.)

While the apples cook, prepare the topping: beat the eggs and sugar thoroughly until thick and pale.

Add the melted butter and vanilla and continue mixing at high speed until the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.

Spoon the apples into the center of the prepared pastry shell, arranging them carefully.

Pour the topping over the apples.

Bake until golden, about 30 minutes.
