Ingredients

For the Pastry

  • 250 grams Plain Flour
  • 70 grams Icing Sugar
  • 125 grams Butter
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 tbsp Water

For the Filling

  • 100 grams Brown Sugar
  • 70 grams Butter
  • 2 Eggs, Large
  • 100 grams Almonds, Ground
  • 4 Apples Peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 jar Plaid Shirt Farms Black Currant Tart Filling
  • 30 grams Butter, Melted

Instructions

For the Pastry

  • Mix the plain flour and butter in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. Then mix in the icing sugar and a pinch of salt, followed by the egg yolks. If the pastry feels too dry to form a dough, add 1 tbsp water.

  • Shape the dough into a ball, flatten it out into a disc, wrap it in cling film, then chill for at least 30 mins before rolling it out and lining a 22cm tart tin.
  • Pre bake the pastry for 10 minutes at 360 degrees F. We used a tin foil trough filled with sugar to weigh down pastry to hold its shape. Remove the tin foil and sugar and give it another 5 minutes in the oven.

For the Filling

  • Beat together 70 grams butter and sugar (hold back 1 tsp), then slowly beat in the eggs and fold in the ground almonds. Spread a nice layer of Plaid Shirt Farms Black Currant Tart Filling on the pastry base and then cover with the cake mixture.
