For the crust

  • 1 package tarte dough pre-made
  • or
  • 1 1/4 cups (160g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. butter, cold
  • 1 tbsp. heavy cream, cold (plus more if needed)

For the filling

  • 4 medium sized apples (about 18 oz./500g)
  • 1/2 cup (100g) sugar
  • 3 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 11 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

To finish the cakes

  • 1 egg
  • sugar for sprinkling

For the mascarpone cream

  • 8.8 oz. (250g) mascarpone
  • 3/4 cup (200ml) heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup (50g) confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 oz. (30g) hazelnuts, chopped


  1. Use the pre-made dough or make one with the ingredients listed above. Just mix the ingredients until you get a nice smooth dough and let rest in the fridge for about 45 minutes before using it.
  2. Wash, peel and core the apples, cut into small dices. Add together with the sugar to a bowl, mix and let soak for about 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  3. Drain the apples, discard the liquid. Mix the apples with cinnamon and cornstarch until well combined. Grease the glass jars and fill with the apples – you might need to shake the glasses a bit so the apples fill up all the space. Roll out the dough on a floured surface (pre-made or fresh) and cut out rounds in the size of the opening of the glasses. Place on the glasses and press down to cover the apples. Use a sharp knife to cut vent holes into the dough, brush with some whisked egg and sprinkle with the sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  4. For the mascarpone cream mix the mascarpone with heavy cream, confectioner’s sugar and cinnamon until well combined. Serve alont with the cakes, decorate with some chopped hazelnuts.


  • Enjoy baking!
