A gourmet delicacy: a delicious recipe with sweet Ambrosia™ apples and fresh thyme.
for 6 tartlets
Whole wheat flour (plus more for the work surface)
Leaves from 2 small thyme branches
Jam of your choice (we used strawberry jam)
Granulated Sugar (for dusting)
It's that easy!
Place all the ingredients for the Italian shortbread in the bowl of a stand mixer. Knead with the flad beater at medium speed for 3 minutes or until you get a smooth dough. Alternatively, you can knead by hand in a medium bowl: in that case mix the ingredients with a spoon first.
Place the dough in a container with a lid and refrigerate for at least one hour. Preheat the oven at 180°C, static.
Lightly flour your work surface and roll the dough into a 4-mm-thick oval. Cut out 6 disks, 12 cm diameter each (re-roll the scrapes if necessary). Use the leftover dough to make cookies.
Core and half the apples, then slice them into 1-to-2-cm-thick slices. Place 2 tsp of jam and the apple slices at the center of each shortbread disk, leaving a border of 2.5cm. Fold in the borders, lightly brush them with milk and dust with sugar. Sprinkle a few laminated almonds. Bake for about 25 minutes or until your tarts are evenly golden.
