Print Recipe


  • 200 g shortcrust pastry
  • 300 g applesauce
  • 2 apples depending on size
  • 2 tbsp almond powder
  • 10 g butter to butter and flour the mold
  • 10 g flour to butter and flour the mold

Honey syrup:

  • 30 g water
  • 80 g acacia honey or other light honey
  • 80 g sugar


  • rolling pin
  • fork or a pic-vite
  • chuck
  • circle 18cm in diameter (or 1 pie plate)
  • baking mat
  • pastry brush
  • small saucepan


Step 1

  • Butter and flour your pie pan then with your rolling pin.
  • Lower your dough up to 4mm thick.
  • Go for it in your mold and, if you wish, chip the edges.

Step 2

  • Stitch the inside of your dough with a fork to prevent it from swelling when cooked.
  • Sprinkle almond powder tart bottom.
  • Add the apple sauce about 1cm thick and put everything in the refrigerator while preparing the apples.

Step 3

  • Preheat your oven to 180 ° C
  • Peel the apples and cut them both. Evid them then cut strips about 0.5 cm thick.

Step 4

  • Arrange them on your pie shell in a spiral and bake your pie directly for 30/40 minutes.

Step 5

  • Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat the water, sugar and honey and stir with a whisk. Bring the mixture to a boil and reserve at room temperature to cool down and thicken slightly.

Step 6

  • Allow the pie to cool to room temperature before unmolding and top it with honey to give it a brighter and greedy look.


Tip Step 2
Almond powder absorbs water from applesauce when cooked. This little trick helps preserve the dough so that it keeps its crispy texture.
Tip Step 6
If you made your pie in a circle and shredded your dough, remove it easily by placing your pie on a plate slightly smaller than the size of your circle. Your circle will come down all alone and your pie will be perfectly unmoulded.
