Apple tart is one of these well-known traditional French desserts. There are so many ways to make a delicious French apple tart. There is the famous Tarte Tatin (an upside-down tart), and the well-known apple tart from the region of Normandy (a regular apple tart with a creamy filling), and everything in-between. Today, I am sharing my recipe of French apple tart. It is lighter than a tart from Normandy as it does not contain cream, which showcases the apples. It has a sweet underlying taste of almond, that is SO delicious! The best part: it is very easy to make! The perfect dessert to enjoy these Fall apples!
Easy French Apple Tart
Delicious and light French Apple Tart. Very easy to make!
Enroll the puff pastry to fit the pan. Sprinkle with almond flour to cover the entire surface.
Peel the apples and cut in thin slices. Squeeze lemon juice on the apples. Arrange apples on the tart.
Tip: using a food processor will allow you to make very thin apple slices.
With a pastry brush, cover the apples with egg yolk. Sprinkle raw cane sugar all over the apples.
Bake in oven for 35 minutes. Let it cool down. Enjoy it warm or cold. It is delicious with vanilla ice cream on the side!

A special note to my French readers: In the this recipe, I replaced the French “poudre d’amande” by almond flour as it is impossible to find “poudre d’amande” in the US. Almond Flour is the closest equivalent to “poudre d’amande”, the difference being that the grind is thinner.
