79: Apple Tart with Walnut Crumble

Today is the fourth anniversary of when I started dating my sweetheart. And since he does not really remember all the different anniversaries that I keep track of, I surprised him with this heart shaped Walnut crumbled apple tart - a really simple and yum alternative to the apple pie.

For the tart,
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 apple, peeled, cored, thinly sliced
1 tsp. cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp. nutmeg powder
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. lemon juice

For the walnut crumble,
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar

Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Combine the apple slices, nutmeg powder, cinnamon powder and lemon juice. Heat and pan and add the apple mix along with the sugar. Cook the apples until lightly browned and caramelized (approx. 8-10 minutes). In the meantime, line the greased tart pan with the puff pastry dough. For the walnut crumble, combine all the ingredients. Place the caramelized apple slices in the tart. Top with the walnut crumble. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Shared the warm apple tart with my sweetie....happiness...:)
