So this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is actually called Crispy, Crackly Apple-Almond Tart, but since I couldn’t find filo dough I had to drop the Crispy, Crackly part and use puff pastry instead. But despite this initial setback, I was really excited about this recipe.
Maybe it’s because fall is in the air, maybe it’s because I haven’t done a dessert in a while… or maybe, just maybe, it’s because apple pie is one of my all time favorite desserts and pie crust is one of my all time most dreaded recipes to prepare. Dorie’s alternative, a simple almond cream and thinly sliced apples on a
filo puff pastry base sounded like an awfully promising alternative.
In the end, Dorie’s recipe delivered on its promise. This was just crazy easy! The almond cream came together in minutes and then it was really just an assembly job.
Yummy, I will definitely make this again. The satisfaction of apple pie without the annoyance of making crust!
