    Leave to cool on a wire rack. If possible, glaze the top, using a brush.

Remarks:

You will notice that in Step 4 no sugar is added to the apples. There reall is no need, as the Macvin du Jura is already plenty sweet enough, as is the hazelnut buttercream filling.

[Translator's note: I chose to keep the French name, but I was so tempted to call this "Jurassic Tart"!].
