Get ready to celebrate the approaching new year with a thin crust French apple tarte and the Galette des Rois or rather, the King’s Cake. The Galette des Rois a cake that is traditionally shared at Epiphany, on 6 January in France and it celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men.
The King’s cake is composed of a puff pastry cake with almond cream called Frangipan and usually comes with a small figure called the fève (made with bean paste) hidden inside. Some said that whoever who gets the piece of cake that has the hidden fève will be bessed and enjoy good luck for the year.I make it from the same fabric.
The Tarte fine aux pomme, or thin crust apple tart will be made with almond cream. This almond cream can be stored frozen, and one can top it with any fruits in season. The pastry is very compatible with pears and figs, blueberries and mirabells, apricot and karia pears, but this time, we’ll be using apples.
