Tarte aux pommes

It's Apple tart/pie in english... This is the french apple tart. It is not the one of americans pie where you have the top pastry. I made this for a lunch date, and it's best eat warm with some ice creams. Delicious :D
This tart is easy to use and I like the idea that I made everything from scratch. The combination of apple and cinnamon, is just heaven. It is very close to those McDonald's apple pie filling.

Here is the recipe:

- For bottom pastry:
125g flour
50g icing sugar
60g butter
15g almond powder
Half an egg
2g salt

- For filling (Apple compote):
4 Golden apples (peeled)
50g sugar
dash of cinnamon powder

- For topping:
3 Golden apples (peeled)
Some sugar

1. Do the bottom pastry first. Let the dough rest in the fridge for about 45 minutes.
2. Dice the apples, put them in a casserole, add in sugar and cinnamon powder. Start with 1 minute of medium heat, cover the casserole. The 2-3 minutes until it becomes compote on low heat.
Let it cool a bit, then blend it until shiny and no apple pieces.
3. Slice the 3 apples, make sure the slices are at the same thickness.
4. Take out the pastry from the fridge and roll it out. Dress the rolled thin pastry into the pie mould, slightly buttered and floured.
5. Pour in the compote first. Then arrange the apple slices. Make sure that the round part of the apple facing the border of the pie.
Add a bit of sugar all over the topping.
6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees Celcius for about 30-40 minutes, until the top is slightly golden brown.

And it's done!!!
