LSL {Foodie Friday} - Apple Almond Tart

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, paired along with the rapid drop in temperature and the current overcast of the day; this Foodie Friday makes me want to cook and enjoy something comfort-like. To me nothing feels more fall than a delicious baked apple dish. I came across this recipe after drooling over apple desserts on my favorite site. This Apple Almond Tart is from the lovely blog of Sweet Fine Day. Pictured below and paired with caramel ice cream, this is a for sure on my to do list of desserts I must make. 

Apple Almond Tart (makes one 11-inch tart)
{recipe here}

For the crust
2 cups flour

6 ounces butter

5 Tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 egg yolk 

For the filling
1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 ounces finely ground almonds

1 teaspoon almond extract

3-4 apples, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick (any variety of apple would do just fine)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Beat the butter and sugar together in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, beat for one more minute. Finally, beat in the flour, almonds, and almond extract, stopping to scrape the sides of the mixing bowl if necessary. Spread this mixture in an even layer into the baked tart shell. Begin arranging the sliced apples around the side in overlapping concentric circles, until the entire top of the tart is covered. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the center of the tart is firm and fully cooked. Remove from the oven and cool completely before slicing.

Bon appetit lovelies!
