Apple tart competition
I’m by no means a great baker but my local school have asked if I’d enter an apple tart for their Holloween competition bash but I want to put a twist on your standard apple tart and here is what I’m thinking. I’d value your views and opinions
I’m using an 8 inch fluted pie tin and rather than using standard shortcrust pastry I’m thinking of using a puff pastry.
My ideal would be to cover the base and side of the tin with puff pastry and fill the bottom with a apple compote with a dash of brandy. Then filling out the rest of the tart with a layer of half-moon shaped apples starting at the outside and working in. My idea would be to finish the tart of with a wash of apricot jam and sprinkled with icing sugar.
It’s not a real competition just a primary school fund raiser but if I am going to help out I’d like to do something different.
