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.

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.
