Recipe type: Low Carb Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 16
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract Order Here
  • cinnamon
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon Swerve brown sugar Order Here
  • ¼ cup swerve Order Here
  • 1½ cups apple (or pear) thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • Almond Flour Crust
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 egg yolk
  1. Make Crust First, combining all ingredients. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Now is time to get all other ingredients out and measured.
  3. Remove almond flour pie dough and roll between two pieces of parchment paper or plastic wrap. Place in tart pan. There will be enough dough left over to make one small tester.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 6 minutes, just enough to set the dough.
  5. Peel and cut one to two apples to get about 1½ cups thinly sliced.
  6. Place one tablespoon butter and in small frying pan and sauté apples for a minute. Add almonds. Continue stirring frequently until almonds are golden brown.
  7. Heat the heavy cream with swerve and maple extract until it boils. Take off heat.
  8. Add apples and almonds to tart. Pour heavy cream into tart.
  9. Cover the Crust with foil as almond flour browns very easily.
  10. Place a sheet pan on the rack beneath the tart, covered in foil in case of run over.
  11. Turn oven up to 400 degrees and bake for 25 minutes.
  12. When you take the tart out of the oven, run a butter knife gently around the edges as the caramelization can cause sticking.
  13. Cool completely before removing.
  14. Cut into 16 squares.
