I visited my sister’s place last month. Those couple of weeks was very exciting. Samantha, my sister is really the sweetest person you will ever meet. She is amazingly beautiful and she is a pastry chef. She headed straight to the kitchen and whipped a fantastic gorgeous apple walnut tart for me. It was pure loveliness and so beautiful that my jaw dropped when I saw this one…

- 2 Apples quartered, cored and thinly sliced
- Lemon water
- 1 Lemon juice
- ½ cup Apricot jam warmed; optional
- 2 ½ cup Walnut pieces
- 2 tablespoon Granulated sugar
- 1 Egg white
- ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
- 4 tablespoon Unsalted butter
- 6 Egg yolks
- ½ cup Maple syrup
- ¼ cup Cornstarch
- 1 ½ cup Milk
- ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Firstly keep the apple slices in lemon water until ready to use.
Preheat the oven to 400⁰ F or 200⁰ C.
Now in a food processor, process the walnut pieces until they are finely chopped and the pieces are about the size of breadcrumbs.
Place the chopped walnuts in a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
Toss them together with a fork.
Now press the mixture evenly over the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom and bake it for 15 minutes.
Pour the milk into a small pot and place over medium heat until bubbles forms around the edges.
Now in a medium mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolk with the maple syrup, cornstarch, and salt.
Slowly pour the hot milk over the egg mixture and continue whisking to warm the egg.
Now place the mixture back into the pot and place over low heat.
Cook it and stir it constantly until the mixture comes to a bubble and becomes very thick.
Now stir in the vanilla extract and transfer to a heat safe container.
Lay the plastic wrap over the surface and chill it for 2 hours.
In the walnut tart shell spread the maple custard.
Now warm the apple slices in the microwave until pliable.
Roll a slice of apple into a tight spiral and stand it up vertically in the custard.
Continue to arrange apple slices in a concentric pattern, around the first one, building a rose pattern.
Then warm the apricot jam, and thin it with lemon juice.
Now brush this apricot jam glaze over the apples for shinning.
Your apple walnut tart with maple custard is ready to serve.
When I first saw this tart, my eyes were dumb shocked. And after having it I was lost in the oasis. It was just stunning. I felt so lucky for having it. The juicy apples in maple custard, bath in lemony water made it really fussy. I guess everyone will fall in love with the visual impact.
