Instructions for the tart

  • In a bowl pour the flour and add the cold butter grated on a grater with large holes. Add the yolk, powdered sugar and a pinch of salt. Knead the dough briefly until it becomes smooth and homogeneous. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for half an hour in the refrigerator.
  • Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to a thickness of 3 – 5 mm. Roll the pastry on the rolling pin and transfer to a round baking pan, previously greased and sprinkled with some flour. Transfer the dough and gently press it with your hands into the pan. Prick the bottom with a fork.
  • Cover the pastry with apple jam. Drain the floating slices and wipe them gently with a paper towel. Begin to cover the jam with apple slices overlapping each other in a circular way, starting from the edge towards the center. When it is no longer possible to continue, place 2 slices of apple in the center facing each other.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 210 – 220°C for 15 minutes. After this time turn down the oven to 180°C and cook for another 10 minutes.
