This Normandy Apple Tart is everything I think a French tart should be– chic and elegant and deceptively easy. It’s a sweet tart dough with a simple applesauce filling and circles of sliced apples on top. I love the way the apples brown on their tips…so pretty.
Dorie’s applesauce is really good. In fact, I multiplied the recipe, because if you’re gonna make applesauce, you might as well make enough to enjoy even when the tart is finished. It has hardly any sugar and no spices, so the flavor is pure apple. Putting it through a food mill (with the coarse disk) gives it a great texture. When its baked in the tart, it firms enough to make perfectly clean slices.
