Glazed Apple Tart to Die For
This tart is a solid 70 percent fruit and 100 percent delicious.
Gather these ingredients:
- 6 large ripe Gala apples
- ½ cup of sliced almonds
- ½ cup of maple syrup
- 1 lemon (cut in half)
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- ¼ cup of apple-flavored brandy
- 3 tablespoons of raw sugar
- 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- All-purpose flour
- 1 large egg (beaten)
- 2 sheets of puff pastry
How to Prepare
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and toast the almonds on a baking sheet for 6 minutes. Toss them at least once. Reduce heat to 275 degrees.
Peel and cut apples in half, and remove cores and place on a 13×9-inch baking dish. Squeeze lemon juice over the apples and add maple syrup, apple brandy, salt, and vanilla extract. Cover and bake apples for 60‒75 minutes until they are tender. Take them out and set them aside to let them cool.
Mix the almonds, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of flour in a bowl. Let pastry dough warm to room temperature; then roll out on a floured surface to 16×12 inches. Place parchment paper on baking sheet followed by pastry dough. Cut off a 1-inch strip all around. Affix to the sheet and brush edges with beaten egg. Then apply the pieces you cut off over the egg-brushed edges. Brush the top of strips; then sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Set the oven to 400 degrees.
Sprinkle puffy pastry with almond mixture and then spoon in the apples evenly. Set any juices aside. Chill the tart for 15 minutes then bake 20 minutes before reducing heat to 275 degrees. Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown.
While baking, cook reserved juices in a saucepan until it thickens to create a glaze. When the tart comes out of the oven, brush it with the glaze. And serve it warm with coffee and/or the ice cream of your choice.
