1Preheat oven to 400°F.
2Line a pie pan with puff pastry and, using a knife, cut off the excess of dough at the edges.
3Set this excess dough aside to make stars/shapes with which to decorate the pie.
4With a fork, prick the dough on the bottom of the pie mold.
5In a bowl, mix the custard flour with the cornstarch and sugar.
6In another bowl, stir the egg with a fork and add the milk. Stir well, and slowly add to the flour mixture.
7Stir constantly as you add the milk to avoid lumps.
8Heat in a saucepan on the stove until thickened.
9Pour this mixture in the tart pan.
10Peel and quarter the apples.
11Drizzle with a few drops of lemon juice so the apples don't brown.
12Arrange the apples on top of the mixture.
13Cut a few stars with the remaining dough and decorate the pie.
14Finally, sprinkle with a mixture of 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 tablespoon Demerara sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
15Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
16Let cool before serving.
17If the custard cream gets lumpy, pass it through a mesh sieve or grind it with a hand blender.
