Granny Smith Apple Almond Tart
An autumn beauty in taste and appearance, this tart features a pastry crust spread with an almond genoise-like mixture topped with an overlapping ring of sliced tart green apples.
Pastry for one-crust (9-inch) pie
2 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup finely ground blanched almonds
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
- Roll pastry out to an 11-inch round; line a 10-inch tart pan with pastry. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
- In large bowl with electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick and pale; stir in almonds and melted butter. Pour almond mixture into pastry-lined pan. Arrange apple slices, overlapping in a ring, on top of almond mixture.
