                         dough:
      3/4  cup           all-purpose flour
      1/3  cup           confectioner’s sugar
    1 1/2  ounces        butter
    1      large         egg
                         filling:
    4 1/2  ounces        butter
      3/4  cup           sugar
    2      large         eggs
    1      cup           almond powder
      3/4  cup           cake flour
    2      tablespoons   vanilla extract
    2      medium        tart apples
 
     To make the dough, mix the flour, confectioner’s sugar and 1 1/2 ounces
 butter until a crumbly mixture forms. Add 1 egg and mix until it is absorbed.
     For the filling, mix 4 1/2 ounces butter, sugar and 2 eggs into a smooth
 paste. Gradually add the almonds, cake flour and vanilla extract. Make a smooth
 paste.
     Peel, core, quarter and thin slice apples; save them in orange juice to
 prevent browning. Roll out dough and lay in 9 tart pan, and perforate the
 bottom to prevent unnecessary bubbles. Spread in filling and layer on apples in
 decorative manner.
     Bake at 350 F for 15 to 20 minutes or until filling is done. Glaze with
 melted apricot jelly or apple jelly for a pretty appearance. Garnish with
 vanilla, cinnamon or almond ice cream and/or a complementary sauce.
