Caramelise the apples, taking care not to mash the apple dice as you stir, which can easily happen with this size.

Leave to cool.

Stage 5 - 30 min.
Little apple and verbena tarts : Photo of step #5
Prepare 200 g Diplomat cream, leaving the verbena to infuse in the milk (this can be made well in advance).

Stage 6 - 6 min.

Your tarts are ready. Garnish with a sprig of verbena.
Remarks
You can make a different version with pears. Cooked in maple syrup, they work really well.

If you don't fancy making the diplomat cream, use confectioner's custard or chantilly cream instead.
Keeping
Should be eaten the same day.

This recipe is made by briefly cooking an assortment of soft fruits (raspberries, blackcurrants, blackberries, blueberries, currants...) with a little sugar to glaze them. They are served in a small dish, covered with a delicious sabayon which can be lightly "burned" on surface.

Tiramisu
Tiramisu
Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
