Raspberry Tartelette

Raspberry Tartelette

Adapted from Au Coeur des Saveurs by Frédéric Bau

Sable Breton

8 egg yolks (160 g; 5.6 oz.)
320 g sugar (11.3 oz.)
320 g salted butter (I used unsalted plus 1/2 teaspoon fleur de sel) (11.3 oz.)
450 g flour (16 oz.)
30 g baking powder (1 oz.)

Whip egg yolks and sugar.
Add softened butter.
Sift together flour and baking powder and add as well.
Mix until flour is just incorporated.
The dough will be very soft and needs chilling to be shaped or cut. I rolled it out immediately between baking mats, chilling it as necessary.
Roll the dough to 5 mm thickness and chill until ready to bake.
Cut out desired sizes (mine had 10 cm diameter) and place the discs in ungreased rings.
Bake at 160-170°C (320-340°F) until just baked through in the center.

Caramelized Apples

Caramelized apples

60 g sugar (2 oz.)
20 g water (0.6 oz., 4 teaspoons)
1 Apple (Golden Delicious), peeled and diced
1 Cinnamon stick
Freshly squeezed lemon juice (as needed)

  • Heat the sugar with the water until caramelized.
  • Add the apple pieces and cook until they are soft and the caramel is dissolved again (it will harden at first but the juice from the apples will create a sauce with it)
  • Steep a cinnamon stick in the mixture until desired intensity is achieved and finish with a bit of lemon juice.
