Grated Apple Tart
Last Weekend, I was looking for a seasonal, easy, original and light dessert. I decided on a different type of apple pie. I went to my local farmers market and I asked the farmer what type of apple she would recommend for an apple tart. She gave me an unexpected tip: "never use one single type of apple, but mixed them up, it'll give the tart a better balance". I followed her advice and everyone loved the taste of this unconventional looking apple tart.
· 1 ½ cup/300gr of all-purpose flour
· 1 pinch of salt
· 4 ½ Oz/125gr unsalted cold butter
· ¼ cup/100ml cold water
· 4 Apples
· 2 lemons
· ½ cup/120gr sugar
· 2 eggs
· Unsalted melted butter
1. In a food processor, pulse the flour with the salt.
2. Add the cold butter and process just until the butter is the size of peas, about 5 seconds.
3. Poor the cold water over the mixture 5 or until it comes together.
4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead until desired thickness (I like it thin, so I make 2 tarts with this recipe).
5. Put it in a tart baking dish
1. Preheat the oven to 410F/210C
2. Peel the 4 apples and grate them into a bowl
3. Immediately add the juice of 2 lemons and mix rapidly to avoid oxidation
4. Add the eggs one by one, sugar and melted butter (1 minute in the microwave)
5. Pour the mixture into the tart dish
6. Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes until golden and dough cook through
