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 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lay parchment paper out on the counter and coat it with coconut flour.
  3. Get a roller out and coat it with coconut flour as well.
  4. Once the parchment paper and roller are coated, get your gluten-free dough out and roll it out flat.
  5. 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.
  6. Place it in the fridge while you get to work on your apples.
  7. Once your apples are peeled and cored, cut them in half and then continue you cut them in slices.
  8. Get your dough out of the fridge and begin to place the apples in any arrangement you'd like.
  9. Top them off with coconut sugar and little 1 inch cubes of butter spread randomly over the apples. 
  10. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes. 
  11. 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).
