Crispy Crackly Apple Almond Tart
This apple almond tart starts with 8 layers of fillo, each brushed with butter and sprinkled with sugar. A thin layer of almond cream made from almond flour, sugar, and egg and cream topped the delicate crust. Thinly sliced apples were to be fanned in 3 columns…I passed fanning pears 101, but apparently not the apple chapter…so my apples were lined up like regimented soldiers. A beautiful presentation…but I was slightly underwhelmed. Maybe the suggested Gala apples didn’t offer a huge punch of apple flavor? Or that I’m not a huge fan of almond cream? I much prefer a similar French tart from Ina Garten…using Granny Smith apples over puff pastry. Figures that when hubby loves a recipe, I’m a little ho-hum about it. I took a few slices to a gathering of my girlfriends…they loved it and asked for the recipe..in fact, every slice disappeared. Shows what I know. I think you may have to make it to decide for yourself.
