I was happy to spot this rustic apple slice in a small pastry shop in the atmospheric market town of Revel, east of Toulouse. The region is famous for Galette Landaise, a superb flaky pastry that challenges even a professional. Pompet is a much simpler version. To make it at home, roll pâte brisée with sugar, in the manner of puff pastry, then layer it with thin apple slices — voilà! I like to use a tart apple such as Gala or Granny Smith.
