  • 9 oz plain flour
  • 5 oz caster sugar
  • 4 1/2 oz butter cut into pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lb dessert apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 oz hazelnuts coarsely ground
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp apricot brandy optional
  • 4 oz apricot jam
  • 2 oz chopped hazelnuts


  • Sieve together the flour and 120 g (4 oz) of the sugar into a bowl. Rub in the butter, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and drop in the egg. Gradually incorporate the flour into the egg using a knife or, as the mixture becomes firmer, your fingers. Continue kneading the mixture together, until it forms a smooth dough.
  • Wrap the dough in greaseproof paper and chill for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Roll out the pastry and use it to line a 20cm/8 inch greased pie dish.
  • Layer the apple slices and the ground hazelnuts in the pastry case. Sprinkle over the cinnamon, remaining sugar, lemon juice and apricot brandy, if using.
  • Put the apricot jam into a small saucepan and heat through gently until it has melted. Pour the melted jam over the layers of apple and hazelnut.
  • Sprinkle with the chopped hazelnuts and bake in a preheated oven, 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7, for 35-40 minutes, or until the fruit is soft and the tart is golden brown.
