TWD: French Apple Tart
TWD again and the recipe chosen for this week is French apple tart! This is another time-consuming recipe from the book, as you need to prepare three components for the tart - the flaky tart shell, apple compote and thinly sliced apples as topping. The apple compote is supposed to be baked in the oven until soft and then mash with a fork. But I had to take an extra step to blend it instead as the apples were still not soft enough after baking. After spreading the tart shell with apple compote and arranging the apple slices on top, I decided not to sprinkle sugar on it as I feel that the filling is already too sweet and it would suit my taste bud better without the extra sugar. It took me the whole morning to make the tart but it's so yummy that the effort was worth it.Would I make the tart again? Definitely!
