The custard in this tart keeps the apples juicy and adds a creamy texture.
Lightly beat the egg white in a small bowl and brush a thin layer on the bottom of the tart shell.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, egg yolks, and sugar. Add the cream, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
Arrange the apples in the tart shell, slightly overlapping, in a circular pattern. Carefully pour the custard over the apples until the tart is full. (There may be extra custard depending on the height of the sides of the tart shell.)
Let the tart cool to room temperature before serving.
