Ingredients for Le Jeu de Pommes

200g plain flour
150g butter plus 50g for topping
olive oil
100ml water
2 - 3 apples
caster sugar
icing sugar
acacia honey
1 lemon

How to make Le Jeu de Pommes

  • Make a fine pastry by combining in a blender 200g flour, 150g firm butter, a pinch of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar and a little olive oil.
  • Incorporate 100ml water and work together briefly (you should still see bits of butter).
  • Roll the dough thinly and cut 16 circles of about 12cm with a pastry cutter.
  • Place on non stick baking sheets, cover them with very thin slices of apple.
  • Brush with 50g of melted butter and sprinkle lightly with caster sugar.
  • Bake in a pre heated oven at 220°C for 15 minutes.
  • Turn each tartlet over with a spatula, dust the reverse with icing sugar and grill until the sugar is caramelised.
  • Leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Place 4 tartlets on top of each other (apple upwards) on the plates.
  • Before serving, cover each jeu de pommes with 1 tbsp of warmed acacia honey and sprinkle with a little Calvados and a few drops of lemon juice.

This dessert is wonderful accompanied by a lemon sorbet.
