Tarte Normande

apple pie, Normandy style

Tarte normande

A classic Tarte Normande has a pâte brisée, filled with sliced apples, sliced almonds, cream and sugar, and is baked until slightly caramelized. A firm apple like Granny Smith that will keep its shape is recommended.

A Brandon Normand is a pie with a thick layer of crème pâtissière, flavoured wth ground almonds and Calvados, with quartered apples pre-cooked in butter, flambéed with Calvados.
