When apples are ripening on the trees in early autumn, this is a quick and easy tart. Golden Delicious apples taste quite good in this recipe, or use a Cox’s Orange Pippin.

If chestnut jam, confiture de châtaignes, is not available, there is a good alternative in the crème de marrons mentioned in the previous recipe; it can be spread and tastes delicious. This tart is sometimes flavoured with finely grated orange peel which adds an interesting extra freshness.
