Brown Butter and Apple Tart

March 15, 2010

Mothers day!

We made mum a late season apple tart with brown butter custard.

Browning butter makes a custard transform to a new nutty and deep flavour.

We rolled out the crust filled with sliced late season Irish apples, and poured the silky custard filling on top, spread a handful of chopped almonds and pumpkin seeds around the edge and baked to a golden brown.

Not a slice was left!

Happy mothers day!
