Sometimes you have left overs and these left overs make for a very nice apple lemon curd pie. We had a jar of lemon curd lying in the freezer and had a ton of apples from the garden. They are perfect for making apple pie, apple sauce and more.
For one pie you will need:
- 1 x 540g pack puff pastry
- 7 tbsp of lemon curd
- 4 apples
- 5 tbsp of sugar
- 2 tsp of cinnamon
Here is what you have to do to make this apple pie:
Preheat the oven on 220 degrees Celsius. Cut the apple in small slices, put them in a bowl and add the sugar and cinnamon. Mix together. Let the puff pastry slices defrost on the countertop. Grease the tin with a little butter. Place the puff pastry slices on the tin, so they overlap and press them together. This way you have filled both the bottom and the sides with puff pastry. Spread 5 tablespoons of the lemon curd on the bottom. Lay the apple slices standing up on the pastry until you have filled the bottom (if you have any apple left, try to squeeze them in between the other apples. Put the tin in the oven and bake for around 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, we will be creating the glaze. In a small pan add the remaining 3 tablespoons of lemon curd with 2 teaspoons of water. Stir until it is just runny. When the tarts are finished and you have removed them from the oven, brush the apples and pastry edges with the glaze.
