Ever since I’m back from Paris the most attractive dish I keep making is tart. “Why won’t you make Tarte Aux Pommes for us?” I keep hearing. There’s no reason why not. It’s very simple and so delicious. I expected that after one batch there will be more requests so I made enough dough to last for 4 tarts, at least. Also it was a first time for me using the food processor for the dough. Until then I always made the dough by hand. It was a little messy because I tried to put the whole 1kg of flour in it and it didn’t fit, so I separated into two batches. The main ingredients for a tart dough are: flour, butter, yolks, sugar, salt and some cold water. See step by step here.
After the dough is ready I divided it by 4 and put two parts in the freezer. The First two tarts were classics: “Tarte Normande” and “Tarte au Poire”.
First tart was promised for Rosh Hashana dinner. This is what we had…
The next day we took the next tart to Cesarea for yet another family meal. This is what we had…
I had a bit of leftover dough from both of the tarts. I decided to make another tart instead of cookies. Well… a “second hand” dough is not perfect, this type of dough is better left minimum worked on. But it turned out not bad. I used the only fruits left at that time in the kitchen – apples and plums.
Last tart I baked lately was for a dinner party I wasn’t part of. Almonds and caramelized apples again. I heard they liked it.
I have one more tart dough in the freezer. Any special requests?
