How to prepare tartlets with rennet apples and macaroons

Ingredients for 4 tartlets with a diameter of 10-12 centimeters

300 g of flour

180 g of butter

2 large egg yolks

70 g of sugar + 4 tablespoons

a pinch of salt

8 tablespoons of apricot jam

8 macaroons

4 rennet apples

lemon juice


For the shortcrust pastry, work 150 grams of butter at room temperature in a planetary mixer with the egg yolks and sugar.

Once a cream has formed, add the flour and salt and stir quickly until the dough is crumbly.

Wrap it in a food film and let it rest in the refrigerator for about an hour.

After the indicated time, spread the pastry in a thickness of about 3 millimeters and line the tart molds with the removable bottom.

With the prongs of a fork, prick the bottom of the dough and place two tablespoons of apricot jam on top, spread well over the entire surface and crumble two macaroons on top.

Peel the apples, remove the core and cut them into slices, sprinkling them with lemon juice.

Then arrange the slices in a radial pattern on each tartlet and finish with flakes of butter and a spoon of sugar. Bake at 170 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.
