Frangipane Filling:
Tart:
Cherry-Apple Brandy Compote:
Green Apple Sorbet:

Directions

Special equipment: six 4-inch tart pans

For the pate brisee: In a food processor, blend the flour, sugar and salt with the butter until a coarse meal forms. Add the water and mix until a dough forms.

Form the dough into a disc, sandwich it between two sheets of parchment paper, and roll into a 1/4-inch-thick slab. Chill for 30 minutes.

Cut out circles of dough to fit six 4-inch tart pans; line the tart pans with the dough. Refrigerate until ready to use.

For the frangipane filling: Combine the butter, cornstarch, almond paste, powdered sugar, dried cherries, white chocolate and egg in a food processor. Process to form a paste.

For the tart: Fill the lined tart pans a little over halfway with frangipane filling. Top each with a nice fan of sliced apples.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool before service.

Add a few drops of lemon juice and cook for another minute.

Allow to cool, then puree and serve.

For the green apple sorbet: Make a simple syrup by boiling the sugar and water together. Let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.

In a blender, puree the apples along with the simple syrup and the lemon juice until smooth; strain if a smoother texture is desired.

Transfer the mixture to an ice-cream machine and spin according to manufacturer's instructions.
