Sweet and just a little spicy, these apple tarts are also completely gluten free. The tart crust is made using a combination of quinoa flour, white rice flour, and cornstarch and lightly flavored with a touch of orange zest. Each tart crust is lined with a thin layer of nut and ginger paste and then covered with thinly sliced apples and a drizzle of honey before being baked to perfection. These apple tarts are the perfect treat for autumn and your gluten free friends will thank you a thousand times over.

Ingredients

  • 40 grams quinoa flour
  • 60 grams white rice flour

Directions

  5. Cover the dough in plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  6. The dough can also be prepared the night before, but don't forget to take it out 30-40 minutes before using it, so it won't be too hard.

  10. Mix the nuts to a fine powder, transfer to bowl. Add sugar, ginger paste, mix. Divide the mixture into the bottom of each pie shell.

We liked the crunch of the nuts in this tart but I couldn't resist pouring warm cream on top of each slice to add in some dairy. I think most any fruit could be used with success.
