Tarte aux Pommes

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).

Simple ingredients....

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!

I'll send this to the Make it with......... Mondays series at Couscous and Consciousness and Cream Puffs in Venice's Magazine Monday series.

Announcement: I am going to be guest hosting for Cream Puffs in Venice ’s Magazine Monday series on Monday February 28. If you want to participate please send me your submissions by then.

Thank you Ivonne :-) I will make you a proud creampuff.

Oh, Tina Marie, this tarte looks wonderful - I love the flavour that ground almonds brings to dishes like this - and as for drizzling with Nutella - you are clearly a woman after my own heart.

I know you've really been having a tough time of things lately, and much worry about your poor dog's glaucoma, so thanks so much for taking the time to share with Make it with ... Mondays, challenge almonds.

Sue :-)

Haven't seen you around in awhile so thought I'd pop in and say hi, Hope all is well in your world. This looks awesome! :-)

Drick - Thanks for asking about Kobe; he is sheduled for laser surgery on Wednesday.
This dessert is super quick, I'll tell you. Big treat with Nutella.

MM - Thanks for popping in, I really appreciate it :-) Seems when it rains it pours troubles but they are getting sorted out. Flu is gone (thankfully) and the dog will have his eye fixed (again...hopefully).
