- 200 g flour
- 100 g butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tbsp ice water
- pinch of salt, sugar
- 3-4 sprigs thyme (leaves)
- 2 large juicy apples
- 1 lemon (juice)
- 150 g sugar
- 70 g butter
- a few pinches of cinnamon
- Sift the flour onto a cutting board, add the cold butter on a top and chop it with a sharp knife, mixing with the flour. Form a ball with a hole in the center and place a egg yolk in a top with cold water and knead the dough until smooth. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap it in a foil and place in refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Peel the apple and remove the core, then cut into medium slices. Melt the sugar where you'll cook the Tarte Tatin, and then add the thyme leaves. As soon as the sugar caramelizes, remove from the heat and add juice from half a lemon. Lay the slices of apples in caramelized sugar, drizzle with a little bit of lemon juice and sprinkle cinnamon. Cut the butter into cubes and place on top of apples.
- Roll the dough out into a circle little bit larger than the diameter of the pan and put it on a top of the apples, tucking the ends of the dough with a fork under the apples. Pierce the dough with a fork. Bake in preheated oven at 180'C (350 F) around 25-30 min.
- Put a plate on top of ready tart and flip over, leaving it for 5 minutes, then remove the pan.
- You can pour some warmed brandy on top, ignite, and let the flame burn out before serving if you like.
