Zia Dorina's tart

75 minutes to prepare Serves 12

Zia Dorina


Every time I find a new recipe for apple tart, I can't resist it and I try it. 

Every time my conclusion is the same: Zia Dorina's tart is better.

Today I have something special for you: a familiar recipe of our favorite apple tart. It comes from the aunt of one of my best friends, and we prepare it since I was a child.
It is simply the best tart for me, as the combination of sweet and crispy pastry, softened apple slices and apricot jam is unrivaled.  
I hope you enjoy it!

Here are ingredients for a 12-serving recipe (24-cm diameter baking pan):


For the pastry

240 g flour 00
100 g sugar
100 g butter
1 egg
1/2 sachet vanilla baking powder
1 lemon zest

For the stuffing

1  apple
200 g apricot jam
30 ml Cointreau liquor

  1. Start preparing the pastry: cut the butter into cubes and place it in a bowl. Add flour and vanilla baking powder, both sifted. Add sugar, too, and knead it quickly
  2. Stir in the egg, then add a pinch of salt
  3. Form a ball, wrap it with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour
  4. Peel the apple and slice it thinly. Place the slices in a bowl and add Cointreau liquor. Stir to mix and keep aside
  5. When we are close to the the 1-hour resting time of the pastry, preheat oven to 180°C
  6. Grease and flour the baking pan, then cover bottom and sides with the pastry cut into a flattened disc-shape, about 5 mm thick
  7. Place the slices of apple in the tray and level it. Cover them with apricot jam and level again
  8. Take the remaining pastry and break it into crumbles. Distribute them over the whole tart surface, being careful to seal the edges, too
  9. Bake at 180°C for about 50 minutes
  10. Once cooked, pull out the tart from the oven and let it cool. When cold, garnish with some powdered sugar and serve
