TWD: French Apple Tart


It's TWD again and the recipe chosen for this week is French apple tart! This is another time-consuming recipe from the book, as you need to prepare three components for the tart - the flaky tart shell, apple compote and thinly sliced apples as topping. The apple compote is supposed to be baked in the oven until soft and then mash with a fork. But I had to take an extra step to blend it instead as the apples were still not soft enough after baking. After spreading the tart shell with apple compote and arranging the apple slices on top, I decided not to sprinkle sugar on it as I feel that the filling is already too sweet and it would suit my taste bud better without the extra sugar. It took me the whole morning to make the tart but it's so yummy that the effort was worth it.Would I make the tart again? Definitely!

Beautiful tart. Love how your apple slices look so perfectly arranged. I'd made this again too! In fact, my husband has already asked me if I was going to make it again.

This was time consuming - not sure if I will ever make it again but it was a very pretty tart. Well done on the beautiful tart!

So pretty and so much hard work. I actually like tart with a little tinge of tartness (Ha! Pun!) in it so I agree less sugar is more!
