French Apple Tart! This is a wonderful recipe. It's super easy, and so pretty too.
Often served chilled, with a coffee or cup of tea, you will find these tarts in many patisseries across Europe. You can make this in one large tart or make mini ones. The choice is yours! Please do enjoy.

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 200C / 400 F. Butter a 8-9 inch tart tin.
If making your own pastry, roll pastry and line it in the tin. With a fork, prick the base. Put parchment or foil with pie weights or dried beans and bake the pastry for 20 minutes. Remove dried beans continue baking another 10 minutes if the base is still pale. Let cool when done.

2. Meanwhile, put apple slices, sugar and cinnamon in a pan and cook for 3-5 minutes until slightly cooked. Remove from heat and let cool.

3. Use the apricot jam mixture to brush the base of the cooled pastry. Put the apple sauce into the baked shell and spread it evenly. Arrange the cooled apple slices all around, overlapping each other.

4. Bake tart for 25-30 minutes until apples are soft. At this stage, you can brush the tart with more of the apricot jam mixture and put back in the oven at 240 C / 475 F for 5 minutes till the apples slightly brown on the edges. Brush with more jam when it's done.
