No Bake Apple Speculoos Tarte

At this time last year, I entered a contest for the Food Network and KitchenAid. You had to create a recipe and submit it via Instagram, Twitter and their site. I didn’t win but it really sparked in me the desire to create recipes.
For the contest, I made a scrumptious Apple Tiramisu. Instead of traditional ladyfingers I used Speculoos cookies (like Biscoff, here in the US). The touch of cinnamon in these cookies are perfect for apples. And to stay with the apple theme, I used an apple liquor called Calvados.
Even though I didn’t win the contest, I did win the approval of my family! And I loved it so much that I created a spin-off the recipe to make today’s No Bake Apple Spéculoos Tart. I used the spéculoos to make the crust, Mascarpone and cream cheese for the filling and I flambée my apples with the Calvados.
All the flavors are there and let me tell you, it gets better overtime! It’s so good that you want to eat it as soon as possible BUT, if you can let it sit in your fridge overnight, it’s even better! Please try it and tell me what you think! No baking required 😎!
No Bake Apple Fall Tarte
A decadent no bake autumn tart
In a medium bowl, mix together the cookie crumbs and the melted butter and press into your tart pan. Let rest in the fridge.
Beat your egg whites to stiff peaks and set aside. In a medium bowl, beat together the mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Fold the egg whites in and pour into the chilled crust evenly. Let rest in the fridge for about 2 hours.
In a medium pan, saute the apples with the butter until golden brown and tender. Add 2 tbsp of sugar
to caramelize the apples. Once caramelized, add the Calvados liquor (room
temperature or warmer) and flambe. Put the flambe apples in a bowl and let them cool down.
A few minutes before serving, top your tart with the apples and sprinkle the cookie crumbs.
