Method

 
Preheat the oven to 200 ºC (400 ºF). Grease a 24 cm or 26 cm loose-bottomed tin or spray with non-stick spray. Line the base of the tin with wax paper and sprinkle with a little cornflour. Cream the butter and castor sugar together until light and creamy. Add the vanilla essence, then the eggs one by one, beating well after each addition. Fold in all the nuts and turn the mixture into the prepared tin. Spread the mixture evenly in the tin and bake for 45 minutes or until the crust is dark brown and crisp. Remove from the oven and loosen the sides of the crust carefully. Remove the tin and the wax paper. Leave the crust to cool on a wire rack before transferring to a serving platter. Slice each apple quarter into four slices and place in a saucepan with the water, butter and brown sugar. Simmer until just soft but still firm. Cool in the saucepan and arrange on top of the nut crust. Blend the apple juice, sugar, custard powder and cornflour together and heat until the mixture thickens, stirring continuously. Cool the mixture slightly before spooning over the apple slices. Sprinkle with the flaked almonds and serve with cream, if desired. Makes a large tart.
