Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Tarte Normande
Peel 4 apples and cut into sticks.

You can quarter them and cut into smaller pieces if you prefer.

Stage 2 - 5 min.
Tarte Normande
Melt 50 g butter in a large frying pan on high heat. When melted, add 50 g caster sugar.

Mix and leave the sugar to melt.

Stage 3 - 8 min.
Tarte Normande
Add the apples, mix well to coat them in the butter-sugar mixture, then leave to cook just until they are still slightly firm, rather than soft.

Stage 4 - 2 min.
Tarte Normande
Pour in 4 tablespoons Calvados (apple liqueur) and mix well.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Tarte Normande
Drain the apples, spread on a baking sheet and leave to cool.

Stage 6 - 10 min.
Tarte Normande
Roll out 250 g Sweet pastry and line a 7 inch (18 cm) tart tin or ring.

Leave the pastry overhanging the edge and put to wait in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Stage 7 - 5 min.
Tarte Normande
Meanwhile, prepare the tarte normande filling by whisking together 2 Eggs, 10 g Vanilla sugar, 30 g caster sugar, 200 ml liquid cream, and 2 tablespoons Calvados (apple liqueur) in a bowl.

Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Stage 8 - 3 min.
Tarte Normande
Take the pastry case out of the fridge and trim off the excess (we only do this once the pastry is fully cold so it will shrink less later).

Stage 9 - 15 min.
Tarte Normande
Bake the pastry case blind for about 15 minutes.

Stage 10 - 2 min.
Tarte Normande
Take it out of the oven and fill with the apple sticks.

Stage 11 - 2 min.
Tarte Normande
Pour the filling over.

Stage 12 - 20 min.
Tarte Normande
Remove the tart ring if you are using one, then return the tart to the oven for about 20 minutes.

Stage 13
Tarte Normande
When the tart has cooled, finish with a dusting of icing sugar.
Remarks
For an extra flavour boost, lightly caramelize the apples at stage 3 and flambé the Calvados at rstep=4.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
