French Apple Tart
I thought I was feeling ambitious af with my eyes set on this gluten-free French apple tart -- but fortunately it came together easily enough! This was my first time whipping up a dessert for a big dinner, and it was a friendsgiving no less.
Knowing there would be gluten-intolerant guests at dinner led me to my first step which was finding a nice gluten-free pie crust. I'm not a huge fan of gluten-free products, depending on what all is put in them -- but ya girl was determined to make this damn tart.
Once I got the crust down I searched Whole Foods for the ingredients.
- 4 Granny Smith Apples
- Organic Peach Preserves
- Cage-free Eggs
- Unsalted Butter
- Coconut Sugar
- Coconut Flour
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Lay parchment paper out on the counter and coat it with coconut flour.
- Get a roller out and coat it with coconut flour as well.
- Once the parchment paper and roller are coated, get your gluten-free dough out and roll it out flat.
- Once the dough is rolled out about 1/4 an inch thick, you can cut it into whatever shape -- I just cleaned up the edges to make it into a rectangle.
- Place it in the fridge while you get to work on your apples.
- Once your apples are peeled and cored, cut them in half and then continue you cut them in slices.
- Get your dough out of the fridge and begin to place the apples in any arrangement you'd like.
- Top them off with coconut sugar and little 1 inch cubes of butter spread randomly over the apples.
- Place on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
- Once your apple tart is finished baking, pull it out right away to add an organic peach preserve glaze while it's still warm (take a small bowl of peach preserves and put in the microwave for 30 seconds, then continue to glaze the apples for a finishing touch).
