Crisp Apple Tarte Tatin Recipe
- 1/2 Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 Cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
- 1/4 Cup sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 Egg yolk
- 2 Tbsp ice water
- 1 Cup sugar
- 1/3 Cup fresh apple cider
- 1 Lemon, juiced
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 4 to 6 Granny Smith, Golden Delicious or McIntosh apples
- 1/4 Cup heavy cream
- Fleur de sel
- 1. Prepare the crust. Combine butter, flour, sugar and salt in a food processor and pulse until it resembles fine meal. Add the egg yolk and 1 to 2 tablespoons water, pulsing until a ball of dough forms.
- 2. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a circle 11 to 12 inches in diameter. Cover with lightly floured plastic wrap. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.
- 3. Preheat oven to 425F.
- 4. To make the filling, combine sugar, apple cider, lemon juice and vanilla in the tarte tatin dish. Stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. The mixture will color and eventually become a deep amber. At this point, remove from heat and immediately stir in butter, a few pieces at a time.
- 5. Arrange the apples round-side down in the pan. This will become the top of your tarte, so be creative. Return the pan to medium-low heat, and cook another 10 to 15 minutes, being careful not to burn the caramel.
- 6. Remove the pan from the heat and place the dough circle over the top, pressing the edges down between the apples and the pan. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool 10 to 15 minutes.
- 7. Invert a cake plate or other serving dish on top of the pan. Gently flip it over and allow the tarte to fall onto the plate.
- 8. Drizzle with cream and sprinkle with fleur de sel.

Madame Mallory’s (Helen Mirren) icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate into a heated battle between the two establishments until Hassan’s (Manish Dayal) passion for French haute cuisine — and for Madame Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) — combine with his mysteriously-delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Madame Mallory cannot ignore.
At first Madame Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.
