alsatian apple tart

4 servings
  Sweet Pastry Dough:
1 cup Flour
3 tablespoons Sugar
¼ teaspoon Baking powder
 pinch Salt
4 tablespoons Unsalted butter
1 large Egg
  Apple filling:
Golden Delicious Apples
2 tablespoons Sugar
¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
  Kirsch Custard:
⅔ cup Heavy cream
3 tablespoons Sugar
1 tablespoon Kirsch
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 ⅛-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
