This lovely, homey-looking Polish tart with its fragrant cooked-apple compote filling is topped with a cookie-like dough that’s woven into a lattice. It’s an old family recipe from my friend Krystyna Mayer in London.

Traditionally, this dessert is served cut into squares. If you are baking it in a tart or springform pan, cut it into wedges.
