Croustade (apple tart)

Croustade (apple tart)
This is a Gascon apple pie, and the amazing crust is so unbelievably thin that locals call it a ‘wedding veil’ or ‘nun’s veil’. This spectacular pie keeps well for a day, or even two, and can be reheated.
Provided by: Caroline Conran
Total time: 70 minutes
Yields: 6 servings
Number of ingredients: 8
  • 1 kg apples , such as Golden Delicious or Chantecler
  • 100 ml armagnac
  • 55 g unsalted butter
  • 12 sheets of filo pastry (270g)
  • 115 g caster sugar , plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar or a few drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small sprig of fresh rosemary
  • Calories: 303 calories
  • Fat: 10.7 g fat
  • Saturated Fat: 3.3 g saturated fat
  • Protein: 2.1 g protein
  • Carbohydrate: 43.5 g carbohydrate
  • Sugar: 33 g sugar
  • Sodium: 0 g salt
  • Fiber: 0 g fibre
How to cook:
  1. Peel, core and quarter the apples, then thinly slice and place into a bowl. Pour over the armagnac, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF/gas 5. Melt the butter, then use a little to brush a loose-based 25cm round flan tin.
  3. Brush a sheet of pastry with the butter and lay it over the bottom of the tin, draping the excess over the sides.
  4. Sprinkle over ½ teaspoon of sugar. Brush a second pastry sheet with butter and lay it at right angles to the first, then sprinkle with sugar.
  5. Repeat the process with more pastry sheets, laying each sheet diagonally, until you have 4 pastry sheets left.
  6. Drain the apple slices, but not too thoroughly as the armagnac flavour is so good, then mix them in a bowl with the remaining sugar and the vanilla. Grate in the lemon zest, then pick and finely chop a few rosemary leaves and stir into the mixture.
  7. Pile the apple slices into the flan tin and spread them out evenly.
  8. Brush the remaining pastry sheets with butter and sprinkle with sugar, as before, then drape over the apples, butter-side down, with each sheet at right angles to the one before it.
  9. Draw the overhanging ends lightly over the top of the pie and arrange them so they stick up as much as possible, like crumpled tissue paper. They should completely cover the top of the pie, forming a light and airy crust. Brush lightly with butter.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden, then very loosely cover with a sheet of tin foil. Cook for a further 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbling.
  11. Allow it to cool slightly in the tin before transferring to a serving plate. If you feel nervous about doing this, serve it from the flan tin.

Toffee apple tart

Toffee apple tart
This is a fantastic dessert that I love to make for friends and family as they can’t get enough of it. The combination of toffee and apples is a fairground classic but feel free to try it with pears, bananas, even strawberries – they’re all absolutely delicious!
Provided by: Jamie Oliver
Total time: 180 minutes
Yields: 8 servings
Number of ingredients: 12
  • 1 vanilla pod , (optional)
  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 250 g plain flour
  • ½ a lemon
  • 2 large free-range egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons cold milk
  • 2 x 397 g tins of condensed milk , or 2 jars of Merchant Gourmet Dulce de Leche toffee
  • 4 medium cooking apples
  • 2 heaped tablespoons icing sugar
  • Calories: 666 calories
  • Fat: 25.3 g fat
  • Saturated Fat: 14.6 g saturated fat
  • Protein: 12.8 g protein
  • Carbohydrate: 103.4 g carbohydrate
  • Sugar: 79.4 g sugar
  • Sodium: 0.5 g salt
  • Fiber: 2.2 g fibre
How to cook:
  1. Put the unopened tins of condensed milk in a high-sided pan, covered with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 3 hours with a lid on top. It’s very important to remember to keep checking the pan, as you don’t want it to boil dry – otherwise the tins will explode. It will give you the most amazing toffee. Put the tins to one side and allow to cool.
  2. To make the pastry, score the vanilla pod lengthways (if using), and scape out the seeds (keep the pod for making vanilla sugar).
  3. Cream the butter, icing sugar and a small pinch of sea salt together, then rub in the flour. Add the vanilla seeds, finely grate in the lemon zest and add the egg yolks – you can do all this by hand or in a food processor.
  4. When the mixture looks like coarse breadcrumbs, add the cold milk (or use water).
  5. Pat and gently work the mixture together until you have a ball of dough, then flour it lightly and roll into a large sausage shape – don’t work the pastry too much otherwise it will become elastic and chewy, not flaky and short as you want it to be.
  6. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and place in the fridge to rest for at least 1 hour.
  7. Remove it from the fridge, slice it up and line a 28cm loose-bottomed tart tin. Push the slices together, then tidy up the sides by trimming off any excess. Place the tart mould into the freezer for 1 hour.
  8. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4, then take the pastry case out of the freezer and bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  9. Peel and quarter the apples and remove the cores, then finely slice and toss in the icing sugar.
  10. Spread the caramel from both tins over the pastry case. Place the apples on top and pour any remaining juices over.
  11. Bake at the bottom of the oven for 40 minutes, to give you a crisp base and bubbling toffee over the apples. Serve with yoghurt or vanilla ice cream. Beautiful!
