French Tarte Tatin with Aroma Nea Wine !

Preparation time: 20 minutes / 50 minutes*

Cooking time: 30 minutes

*You can use a already-made shortbread dough from the supermarket, or make your own home made dough, which will lengthen the preparation time by half an hour.

Garnish Ingredients:

  • 8 Golden apples

  • 150 g Butter

  • 150 g Sugar

  • 1 Shortbread dough

*Dough Ingrendients:

  • 200 g Flour

  • 100 g Butter

  • 25 g Sugar

  • 1 Egg

  • 1 pinch of Salt

Recipe of the Shortbread Dough:

*You can skip these steps if you’ve bought a ready-made shortbread dough from the store.

First of all, wash your hands!

It is very important to kill the virus.

Mix the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl.

Cut the butter into small pieces.

Add the butter and knead with your finger to obtain a sand.

Add the whole egg, knead and form a ball of dough.

Wrap the ball in plastic film and keep the dough in the refrigerator.

Recipe of the garnishing apples:

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Peel the apples, remove the seeds and cut them into quarters.

Set the apples aside.

To make a caramel:

In a frying pan, add the sugar and butter.

Stir regularly with a spatula until the mixture muddles and turns a blond colour.

Remove from the heat and place the apple quarters on the caramel, forming a pretty tight rosette.

Then sprinkle some cinnamon.

Cover and put back on medium heat for 10 minutes so that the apples begin to cook and soak up the caramel.

*Take the dough out of its plastic film and flatten it out on a floured work surface, using a rolling pin or a bottle 😉

Remove from the heat and place the shortbread dough in your pan over the apples. Tuck the edges back into the pan.

Bake the tarte tatin for 30 minutes in a 200°C oven.

Remove the tart from the pan as soon as it comes out of the oven, being careful not to burn yourself.

Serve with a scoop of cream or vanilla ice-cream.

Enjoy with a glass of Aroma Néa !
