a tourtely apple tart

Thinner than your typical apple pie, this double-crusted Tourtely Apple Tart has a gently spiced, chunky applesauce sandwiched between layers of sweet tart dough.  Since sweet tart dough is a cookie-like crust, the damp filling makes it soften up over time– in a very appealing way.  Something about it reminded me of the Cranberry Shortbread Cake we made a while back.  I think the way bumpy top crust drapes over the apple chunks is just beautiful.  I look forward to making this again in the peak of apple season.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read The Whimsical Cupcake, as it was Jeannette’s pick this week.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. That crust is a work of art!

  2. Your tart looks very inviting – would love a slice now.

  3. This looks divine ! I also love the bumpy top.

  4. My apples weren’t chunky enough for draping…shucks, because that looks really good.

  5. Gorgeous tart….what a crust!! wow!

  6. I made a pear tart (well tartlets) and it was so good. I can’t wait to make this with apples since I love apple desserts.

  7. Your tart looks beautiful and I also love the bumpily top. The blanket of crust upon the apples. My crust browned really quickly even with the foil on top. Gonna have to try again and watch more closely, the thermometer. Agree with you regarding the apple season and the cranberry tart made around the holiday.

  8. I love the bumps too. Those lovely pie bumps! Thanks for the info on the sweet tart dough!

  9. Beautiful! I love the name too

  10. This was good. LOVE the bumpy top.

  11. This is one gorgeous looking tart. Love the sparkle from the extra sugar on top.

  12. How awesome this looks! The crust on top, the edging, the sugar….it looks so pretty and delicious, my mouth is watering!
