Alsatian Apple Tart

Ingredients & Directions

Sweet Pastry Dough:
1 c Flour
3 tb Sugar
1/4 ts Baking powder
pn Salt
4 tb Unsalted butter
1 lg Egg
Apple filling:
3 Golden Delicious Apples
2 tb Sugar
1/4 ts Cinnamon
Kirsch Custard:
2/3 c Heavy cream
3 tb Sugar
1 tb Kirsch
3 Egg yolks

For the dough, combine dry ingredients in food processor and pulse to
mix. Add butter and pulse in. Add egg and continue to pulse until
dough forms a ball. Roll the dough into a 14-inch disk and line a
10-inch tart pan. Chill the dough several hours, or overnight.

Peel, core, halve and slice the apples 1/8-inch thick; arrange on
pastry, overlapping. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. For custard,
combine all ingredients; whisk by hand until smooth and well blended;
strain and reserve.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or until apples and crust are
baked through. Remove tart from oven; pour on custard cream, being
careful not to let it overflow. Return tart to oven for 5 to 10
minutes or until custard is set, but not colored or puffed.

Yield: 10-inch tart
