Apple Almond Tart_1.13.1Crust:

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp apple pie spice
  • 6 tbsps cold butter diced
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsps sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1-2 tbsps cold water
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

In a food processor, put the flour, apple pie spice, almond flour and sugar. Pulse to blend.  Add the butter and pulse 5-6 times.  Add the yolk, extract and 1-2 tbsps water to form a dough.  Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 15-20 minutes.

Topping:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1/4 cup cold diced butter

Put all in a bowl and with your fingers, rub the butter and flour together to make the butter pieces smaller.  To this add

  • 1/4 cup demerara sugar
  • 1/2 cup flaked almonds

Combine all well and set aside

Rough the dough on a floured surface and fit it into a 9″ tart pan with a removable bottom (or a 9″ pie plate)

Peel and core 1-1/2 lbs apples and slice thin (I used Granny Smith)

Place apples into the tart pan and then top with the topping mixture.

Bake at 375 for 25-35 minutes or until apples are soft and the top is golden.

Cool 10 minutes before serving.
