Carla Makes an Apple Tart | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 16 November 2018
  • Join Carla in the Test Kitchen as she makes an apple tart! This unadorned tart bakes at a fairly high temperature and boasts a deeply browned crisp crust. The apples at the bottom of the tart are insulated from direct heat, so they steam and soften into a very tender layer. The ones up top hold their shape, which means you’ll get a mix of textures in each bite.

      That's a really american way to eat tarte aux pommes, with crème fraîche ? In France that would be super weird ! Crème fraîche here is mostly used for cooking not to be consumed "raw" :o

        6:03 watching that uncracky dough perfectly and succesfully rolled and smoothly unrolled is such a relieve, because cracky dough gives me anxiety, the apple tart looks awesome, definitely gonna try this, and I LOVE CARLAAAAAA so much, she is my favorite ba chef, always watch her video

            I tried this recipe today and the dough making process was such a mess for me, i just wanted to cry. And the apples on the top were burnt after the first 25 minutes of baking.. I had to decrease the oven for it to cook more on the bottom. At the end it wasn’t what I imagined but i can’t complain because I think I might try again to be better at it. Anyway, I love you Carla and your recipes are the best to make, and also you give me hope. Love your book btw! Much love

              This I the only time that I ever saw a pastry dough and thought 'i can do that', and so I did. Thank you so much Carla!

              (note: went surprisingly well! although i may have worked the pastry too hard, it came out not so flaky, but super cruchy. Not sweet at all, i would appreciate a bit more sugar, maybe on the filling, get some compote in there? OR go more salty and make something with maybe mushrooms, herbs, cheese, tomatoes...?)

                Why play with the dough so much? Just melt the butter, let it cool, then add to mix. The entire dough needs to mix with the butter, not just random spots.

                  at 9:41. Posting the word, "sugar," as a label for Andy's ubiquitous butt. Perfect.

                          Could this be made with vegan butter like Earth Balance instead of dairy butter?

                            It is funny that I love Carla and Claire for the opposite reasons. I love how much Claire is incredibly nerdy about cooking and therefore gets all stressed out about things coming out perfect and Carla, while being as professional as Claire, always has a chilled out vibe around her that makes you feel that even when things may get difficult (like with the elaboration of cheese on the pizza vids), she'll figure it out and things will be OK.

                            Everytmie they use apples they use pink lady apples. In this video Carla says they're accessible everywhere, yet, I have NEVER seen one in a store! And I have LOOKED! Is this a Florida problem?

                                We make a rustic apple pie that was taught to my mom by German farmers in the Stroudsburg, PA area. The apples are halved and dotted with butter and some spices.

                                    Ok that is an interesting way to roll a pie dough which I appreciate but the only thing that I don’t appreciate is that ring that she’s wearing......EEww, rings carry bacteria under them, please please remove your rings, & bracelets, when you work with food, people should be aware of food safety.

                                      My grandmother always said (in regards to making pie crust) "use butter like water, and water like gold". And it turns out every time. :)

                                                      While Carla’s rustic crust looks AMAZING, I use this recipe for the filling of the cinnamon roll apple pie that I got from Tasty. It’s the best of both worlds. If the two channels were to ever collaborate, that would need to be it.

You'll have to hand wash and special dry the stuff but you can get really really good quick folds out of it. The canvass will capture some of the butter - you can very gently pre-load it with a little. The small fibers that will come off won't be a digestive problem.

                                                                      I also use a drill guide and a 5/8" auger bit to core apples....

                                                                      Very important not to "pack" the stuffing of a piled tart into the crust, you'll need air gaps for the cooking to happen/breathe the heat into the fruit. You can enhance this by using a crinkle cutter for slicing the apples on your practice tart.
