Creamy custard and tart apples make a delicious match.



Preheat oven to 350° F.

Place 1 3/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, lemon zest and salt in a mixing bowl; stir to combine. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until pieces are the size of peas. Add 1 egg and stir until dough is almost gathered. Press dough into a 9 1/2-inch tart pan.

Layer apples over dough in the tart pan. In a bowl, combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and whole egg, egg yolks, kirsch, vanilla and 2 tablespoons flour. Stir in cream and pour mixture over apples.

Bake until set, about 60 minutes. Cool and dust with powdered sugar.
