Things I Like Today

Whenever I travel somewhere I like to take something home from the place I’ve been to, even if it’s only an idea or inspiration. In this case I wanted to try a typical French apple pie or tarte aux pommes. Of course it’s not the same like eating it in an idyllic small restaurant behind Notre Dame but it still is very delicious…

Here’s the recipe:

150 g flour
100 g sugar
150 g butter
 2 egg yolks
100 g ground walnuts
lemon zest of one organic lemon
a pinch of salt
2 apples (russet or Granny Smith)

some apricot jam

Make a dough (short pastry) out of all ingredients except the apples and the apricot jam. Let it rest in the fridge for about half an hour. Heat the oven (about 180 degrees) and cut the apples into very thin slices. Put the dough in a buttered tart mould and arrange the apple wedges nicely on it. Put the pie in the oven for about 40 minutes. Take it out and spread a bit of the apricot jam on the apples. Put the pie back into the oven for 20 minutes. When the pie is golden brown and smells deliciously it’s ready!
