Tarte aux Pommes
For a quick dessert when that sweet tooth starts talking, try this. You won't be sorry! An adaption from Better Homes and Gardens magazine (a 2009 issue).
3 or 4 McIntosh apples, peeled, quartered and sliced
1 Tb lemon juice
¼ cup sugar (eyeball it…I probably used less)
3 TB butter, melted
1/8 cup ground almonds
Pastry dough (or for a fast fix – a refrigerated pie crust)
Slice the apples and mix in lemon juice and sugar. Melt the butter in a frying pan and simmer the apple slices over medium heat. Sprinkle ground almonds in. Turn so the pieces do not burn.
This ought to take approximately 12 minutes.
Meanwhile, roll out your pastry dough so you have a roundish 12x9 size piece. Tip the buttery sautéed apples into the middle of the dough. Fold the dough up so it forms a small crust up along the sides with the apples as your centerpiece.
Pop into a 375 F oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
Variations you may try are cinnamon, walnuts, drizzle with chocolate or better still – Nutella!
So mix in some cinnamon…....ground almonds....whatever you fancy!
