Step by step recipe


Stage 1
Little apple and verbena tarts
Prepare 6 tart cases.

Note: the ones you can see in the photo were made in fluted moulds, but this is not essential.

Stage 2 - 8 min.
Little apple and verbena tarts
Peel 2 apples and cut into small dice.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Little apple and verbena tarts
Melt 30 g butter in a frying pan on high heat, then add 50 g caster sugar and the diced apples.

Stage 4 - 5 min.
Little apple and verbena tarts
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
Prepare 200 g Diplomat cream, leaving the verbena to infuse in the milk (this can be made well in advance).

Stage 6 - 6 min.
Little apple and verbena tarts
Put a generous layer of verbena diplomat cream in each tart case.

Stage 7 - 8 min.
Little apple and verbena tarts
Cover with diced caramelised apple.

Stage 8
Little apple and verbena tarts
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.

Home made.
