Original recipe makes 1 - 10 inch tart Change Servings


  1. In a small bowl, mix flour, almonds, 1/2 cup sugar, and cinnamon together. Add chilled butter and vanilla extract. Cut together with a pastry blender until small crumbs form.
  2. Unfold pastry and cut into a 10 inch circle. Place on a large, ungreased baking sheet. Brush with melted butter or margarine. Arrange apples in the center of the pastry, leaving a 1/2 inch wide border of pastry. Spoon almond topping gently over the apples, being careful it doesn't spill over the edges of the pastry.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. Place egg yolks and 3 tablespoons sugar in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Beat mixture constantly with a portable electric mixer. When foamy, add the marsala; continue to beat until the mixture begins to thicken. Do not overcook, or the mixture will curdle. Remove from heat. Serve warm over the apple crumble.

This recipe is wonderful! I skipped the wine sauce and served it with vanilla ice cream and hot caramel sauce. I made 6 individual tarts rather than one big one by using a 10 oz package of puff pastry shells and rolling each shell into a 5 inch circle. It was a big hit at a recent dinner party.

It was good. I just don't keep puff pastry around.

This recipe was a great change of pace from the usual apple pie. I love apples and this recipe is now among my favorites.

This is a DELICIOUS recipe! I substitued oats for the almonds, since some of my family don't care for nuts. And instead of making the sauce, used a caramel sauce drizzled over it. Yumm! This is bound to be a family favorite.

I am going to be "that" cook that gives it five stars and then completely changes it! I wanted to use what I had on hand - lots of pears and pecans. I also went without the sauce and served it with vanilla ice cream. This is a fantastic, easy dessert. Thank you!

This recipe turned out great and was a huge hit with the crowd we fed. In fact, the last person to leave asked me for the aluminum foil and took the tray and all home with he and his wife! How funny! I did add one envelope of the instant Quaker Oats Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal to the crumb topping. It really made the difference. I also served this with Bryers Real Vanilla ice cream.

This is good. My daughters really enjoyed it. It is very light and looks good. I liked the sauce, but it did not travel well. It needs to be used immediately after cooking. Otherwise, great recipe and I look forward to playing with it a bit (for examplee, trying brown sugar instead of white, adding a curd under the apples, etc.)

AWESOME!! I have received so many compliments on this....and they keep coming!! I skipped the home-made sauce and just bought Smuckers Caramel sauce and drizzled it on top. This is almost too easy to make, but it tastes like you spent hours. Even though I did not include the home-made sauce, it was a huge hit. I will be making this over and over again!
