Apple & Almond Tarts

About the bake

Our little Apple & Almond Tarts are actually made with a simple dough, apples, warming cinnamon and sweet marzipan. The rich mascarpone really adds extra luxury to this recip. We think our little apple and almond tarts make for a great winter dessert and can be eaten warm or cooled.

  1. Step 1:

    Put the flour, salt, sugar and yeast into a bowl. Add the olive oil and warm water to make a soft dough. Add a drop more water if needed.

  2. Step 2:

    Turn the pizza dough on to a lightly floured surface and knead well for 8-10 mins until smooth and elastic. (Or use a large mixer with dough hook attachment).

  3. Step 3:

    Grease 2 baking sheets. Divide the dough into 8 balls, then press each one into a round and put onto baking sheets.

  4. Step 4:

    Mix together the mascarpone and cinnamon and spread a dessert spoonful of the mixture on top of each dough round. Sprinkle over the marzipan.

  5. Step 5:

    Slice each apple quarter and arrange the apples on top. Cover with cling film and leave in a warm place to rise for 30 mins.

  6. Step 6:

    Preheat the oven 230ºC (fan 210ºC, gas mark 8). Bake the apple puff for 15 mins until golden and the bases are firm. When cooled slightly, dust with icing sugar.
