Dishes From The Netherlands

1. Appelvlaai – Dutch Apple Tart

Vlaai is a traditional tart from the Limburg province of the Netherlands. It is a bit of a strange tart because of the dough that it uses. Normally, a pie will use some variation of pâte brisée, a flaky shortcrust dough, or a tart will use a pâte sucrée, a sweet shortcrust pastry with the addition of egg yolks. The crust for vlaai instead uses a sweetened yeast dough, almost like brioche.
