Matcha Tea Apple TartLe ricette di Micol
- 100 grams quinoa flour
- 150 grams Tipo 0 flour
- 200 grams salted butter (chilled and cut into pieces)
- 120 grams powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons teas (powdered Matcha, or green tea)
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon water (or milk, if needed)
- 3 apples (golden delicious)
- 100 grams honey
- 200 grams hazelnuts
- 200 grams granulated sugar
- 2 egg whites
- dried blueberries
- 1Sift together the quinoa and 0 flour.
- 2Put the combined flour in a very large pan, and place it all on low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
- 3When flour starts to become very hot, stir more often. Be very careful to not let it get too hot which will give the flour a very acrid smell. Let roast just until the flour takes on a golden color and a heavenly scent, then remove from heat, pour into a glass bowl and let cool to room temperature WITHOUT COVER.
- 4Once cool, add the flour, powdered sugar, Matcha powder and cold butter pieces.
- 5With your fingertips work the dough trying to mix the ingredients.
- 6At this point add the egg yolks and a tablespoon of milk (if you see that the crust needs it) and mix quickly.
- 7Once mixed well, and you are able to create a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours (ideally, you would do this the day before)
- 8Remove the dough from the refrigeratore and let it rest.
- 9Roll the dough, and lay into a tart mold greased and floured or lined with parchment paper.
- 10Pierce the dough a few times with the tines of a fork.
- 11Add finely chopped hazelnuts to the mixer with the sugar. Add the egg whites and honey. Pour the mixture into the pastry shell.
- 12Peel the apples, remove the core and cut into thin slices. Place them on the hazelnut mixture and glaze them with another teaspoon of melted honey with one teaspoon of hot water.
- 13Add a few dried blueberries on top of the cake and bake at 180 degrees for about 45 minutes.
