Recipe type: Baked Goods
Cuisine: French
Serves: 4
  • 4 medium apples, peeled, cored, chopped
  • 3/4 Cup butter
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon zest, lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon zest, orange
  • Pate Brisee or puff pastry, round, 9-inch diameter
  1. Heat 1/2 cup of the butter and the oil in a skillet until quite hot. Add the apples and sugar, shaking to coat the apples.
  2. Add the zests and cook to caramelize the sugar.
  3. In another pan, heat the reserved 1/4 cup of butter until almost smoking and pour in the apples. Take the pan off the heat and fit the pate brisee pastry over the apples.
  4. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 7 minutes and turn the heat to 500 degrees F. to brown. Keep an eye on it, as the pastry can burn quickly at this temperature.
  5. When golden, put the pan on the stove to glaze the bottom and invert tarte onto a plate to serve.
