1. In a large bowl, sift the flour and make a well in the center.

2. Place salt, eggs, diced butter and sugar in the middle. Mix with your fingers.

3. Work the dough quickly until you get a sandy consistency. Add a little water or milk if the dough is too dry and roll it to form a ball. Then wrap in plastic and put in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

4. Preheat your oven to 360°C (180°C).

5. Spread half of the dough into a large disc to make the bottom of the tart.

6. Fill the pastry with jam and cover with sliced apples.

7. Roll out the remaining dough and cut strips about 1/3 inch (1cm) wide.

8. Place these strips over the jam, crossing perpendicularly.

9. Brush with a little milk or egg yolk and bake for 30 – 40 minutes. Enjoy hot or lukewarm.
