Alsatian apple tart

I missed doing some tarts lately and I chose to make an easy one, from fruits. Although I reduced drastically the sugar, I think I could have done it even more. I have the feeling that the sugar reduces the aroma and taste of the apples so when I'll do it next time I'll put even less sugar. Otherwise, mniam mniam ... it is that kind of tart that is so good to be true.
My daughter also wanted to add her contribution to this tart and decorated it with dried raisins.


  • 1 shortcrust pastry
  • 4 apples (in fine slices)
  • 3 eggs
  • 375g sour cream
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of apricot jam
  • dried raisins for decoration (optional)

  1. Stretch the shortcrust pastry on the bottom of the tart pan. 
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs, add the sour cream, sugar and vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Pour this composition in the tart pan over the shortcrust pastry.
  4. Arange the slices of apples in a nicely way. You can put one row and another one on top depending on how large your tart pan is.
  5. Mix the apricot jam with a bit of water and brush it over the apples. This will avoid the apples to become dark in the oven and will give a shiny colour to the tart.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour at 200ºC.

The recipe was inspired from Les meilleurs recettes Marmiton, page 202.
