If there is one thing I like with Fall, it’s the food inspirations attached to it.
Weather gets colder, and we are endlessly looking for cozy moments at home or in cafés. The apple pie is for me a cozy environment maker. I love when the entire room smells like freshly baked apple pie and cinnamon. It makes me just want to grab a blanket, make some hot tea, watch Friends and disconnect.
If you’ve never tried French apple tart ever but are a great fan of apple pies, you will love it! For the garniture, it is a simple almond cream. I recently posted my pâte sablée crust recipe for you here. But if you are running out of time, a pre-made one is fine too 🙂
I don’t blind-bake my tart for the apple one because I love when the crust is hard, and the tart under the almond cream is soft. However, if you want to get a more cookie-like tart, fully bake your tart 35-40min before adding the garniture.

To make the almond cream:
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 1/2 cup of Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 oz of all-purpose flour
- 1 apple
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven for 360° F.
2. Mix the butter and sugar, together in a processor or large bowl. (If you are looking for a good food processor, mine comes from my friend Target :))
3. Add the 2 eggs and the flour and stir until the cream turns to an homogeneous mousse.
4. Put your crust in a pan and pour the almond cream on it. Spread the cream evenly with a table spoon.
5. Chill the tart pan in the fridge for 10min.
6. Place your apples on the cream, starting by the large external circle to middle circle.
7. Place the pan in the oven for 30 to 40min.
6. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
