Ingredients
  1. 4 Granny smith apples, peeled, cored and finely sliced on a mandolin
  2. 25g Unsalted butter
  3. 375g Puff pastry, ready made
  4. Icing sugar, for dusting
Dulce de leche ice cream
  1. 400g Dulce de leche
  2. 300ml Whole milk
  3. Pinch of salt
  4. 100g 70% Dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  5. 1 tbsp Vegetable oil
Ice Cream
  1. For the ice cream, combine the milk and dulce de leche in a bowl. Whisk until smooth and add a pinch of salt. Churn in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Melt the chocolate pieces in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water or in a microwave. Add the vegetable oil and stir. Just before the ice cream finishes churning, take a spoon and dip into the chocolate. Allow the chocolate to drip into the ice cream giving a chocolate chip effect. Decant the ice cream into an airtight container and store in the freezer.
Apple Tart
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  2. Lay a sheet of non-stick baking parchment on an ovenproof baking tray. Roll out the pastry to a thickness of 5mm and cut out two circles using a saucer or cutter around 20cm in diameter. Prick the pastry using a fork to prevent it from rising and lay the apple slices on top in a decorative fan shape, overlapping as you go.
  3. Dust the tarts with icing sugar and dot a little butter around the top. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Dust the tarts with a little more icing sugar and using a blow torch or hot grill, caramelise the sugar to give a golden caramel appearance. Serve the tarts warm with a ball of the dulce de leche ice cream in the centre.
