Picture of Apple Frangipane Tart
In belated honor of Pi Day, I submit for your consideration a pie that is easy to make, delicious, and pleasing to the eye. It is filled with frangipane (an almond meal based confection that differs from marzipan in some way this unclear to me), and it is topped with thin slices of apple. The final product is brushed with apricot jam, which gives it a warm and inviting sheen. For this version of the classic tart, you can follow this recipe . However, you can also find several variations of this recipe online and in cookbooks available at any decent public library. 

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg yolk
3 tablespoons cold water, or as needed

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon apple brandy
2/3 cup ground almonds
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 medium sweet apples - peeled, cored, halved and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon white sugar for decoration
1/4 cup apricot jelly
