Tarte aux Pommes A Beautiful Rose Amid a Million Apple Slices

La Belle Rose

Meet our French apple tart, one with a rose set amid a million apple slices. The French call it Tarte aux Pommes Rosace — a meditative arrangement of thin, evenly-cut apples layered so delicately close, they radiate with an irresistible beauty and inspire a warmth in the heart.

Simple Elegance

We constructed our tart-shell in a traditional, straight-sided French tart ring to give our Tarte aux Pommes a nice, clean aesthetic of simplicity and elegance.

Kissed with Fine Butter

Our tart dough — a traditional pâte sucrée — is enriched with fine Normandy butter and showcases a technique called fraisage — smearing all the ingredients with the heel of the hand in a meditative, repetitive way for a dough that's uniform and smooth.

The result? A light, flaky tart shell, someone once said, Just like butter cookie!

The beginnings of patience . . .

2mm-thin slices tucked into their cosy spots

Meditations on a rose . . .

Browned-at-the Edges

We give a three-and-a-half-minute brûlée blast to complete our apple "rose."

Can you spot which slices are Granny Smith apples, and which are Fuji?

Spice-Kissed Apple Compote

Our compote features a blend of South African Gala and French Granny Smith, cooked gently in melted brown sugar butter with a distinctive hint of our six-spice house blend and Madagascan vanilla bean, then blitzed till smooth and thick, it mounds softly and ever so deliciously on a spoon.

La belle rose!

Ingredients

tart shell: almond flour, flour, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla

apple compote: apples, spices, brown sugar butter, lemon, vanilla

Serving

Serve at room temperature, or warm: if you'd like your tart warm, slice first, then warm the slices in an oven

Storing

Most delicious the day it is made, keeps well refrigerated for another day or two; after a day, the compote may release some moisture and the tart shell may not be as crisp
