Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry out to a rectangle about the size of this magazine and trim the edges to neaten. Place the pastry on a baking sheet and scatter with the almonds and 1 tbsp sugar. Score perforated lines to make 6 equal-size sections (this will make the tart easier to cut). Arrange each half of apple, sliced, in its own section of pastry. Can be made up to this stage the night before, covered with cling film and chilled in the fridge.
  2. Scatter the remaining sugar over the apples, dot with butter, then bake for 50-55 mins until the pastry is biscuity brown and the apples are tinged and soft. Cut the tart into 6 squares, dust with icing sugar, if you like, and serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

You can buy two kinds of shortcrust pastry, the usual one contains just fat, flour and water. The other (or dessert) has the extra addition of sugar and egg. if you cannot find any inyour local supermarket you will find a recipe to make your own on any good baking site. Best of luck, hope it turns out great. I think I will try it too, and I am just going to use ordinary Jus-Roll pastry.
