Rose Street Patisserie Apple Tart

Rose Street Patisserie Apple Tart
John Kraus is one of the best pastry chefs in the world, and he just opened his second bakery, Rose Street Patisserie in Linden Hills back in May.
He describes it as “similar but different” than his lauded Patisserie 46 in south Minneapolis.
Today’s recipe is for their Apple Tart - similar to pie - but so much better! The different textures of this tart will satisfy everyone with the combination of apple custard and sauteed apples in a very different pie crust. Perfect for the holidays as well.
