Tart Dough
1/2 cup of ground almonds
1 cup of flour
1 1/2 tsp of dried lavender
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup of honey (or 1 stick of butter & 1/2 cup of sugar)
5 tb butter

Three apples peeled and roughly chopped
3 ounces of white chocolate, caramelized (instructions below)
1/4 cup of milk
Zest of a lemon
1 tb of fresh lemon juice
sprinkle of sugar
sprinkle of cinnamon

Ground the almonds and lavender

Mix in the flour, vanilla and honey or melted butter

Mix all dough together to form a ball

Push it into the buttered tart pan

Freeze before baking at 350 for about 15 minutes until LIGHT brown

Caramelize white chocolate

Cut the white chocolate into medium sized pieces

Place them in a glass pan

Put them in a preheated oven, around 250 degrees

Take out the white chocolate, every 5 minutes to stir

The chocolate will be ready when it is a medium brown/amber color

Make the compote

Place the apples, milk and chocolate in a pot over medium/low heat

Stir occasionally, until apples become soft and tender about 30 minutes

After the compote and tart have cooled, fill the tart with the compote. Top with some toasted almonds and dried lavender

**Note: dried lavender has a very potent taste. Either soak the lavender in warm water before topping the tart. Or, as pictured, sprinkle lavender only in the center of the tart for a bit of flair.

Pairs Well With


An attempt to make pretzels went weary when, as per usual, the yeast didn't rise. I had to get creative to use the white chocolate I had already chopped and the 1 pound bag of lavender I now own. I mixed my favorite recipes together, rosemary short bread tart dough became lavender short bread. With pear filling getting an autumn twist and becoming an apple filling.
