Sweet Apple Tart

Almond Flour Pie CrustApparently it's "apple week" here on Real Food. This was one of the first things I made with the apples we picked at the local orchard. Adam had mentioned that apple pie sounded good for dessert, so I was inspired to see if I could make one. For a savory version of this dish, see my Bacon Apple Tart post from earlier this month.

1½ c finely ground almond flour (6 oz)
½ t salt
2 T cold butter
1 egg white
2 T ice water (approximately)
  1. Combine almond flour, salt, and butter with a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  2. Beat egg white with 2 t water and stir into flour mixture.
  3. Add remaining water 1 t at a time just until dough comes together.
  4. Press evenly into a 10” tart pan or pie plate.
1 T butter
1½ T honey
½ t cinnamon
¼ t nutmeg
1 egg yolk
3 apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (12 oz)
  1. Melt together butter, spices, and honey over low heat.
  2. Beat egg yolk, pouring butter mixture in a thin stream until fully incorporated.
  3. Add apple slices and stir to coat.
  4. Arrange apples in an even layer atop crust.
  5. Cover loosely with foil and bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 30 min.
  6. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 min or until crust is golden and apples are tender.
