Apple Rose Tart

Ok, I’m getting fancy on you now, but it’s the holidays! This  Apple Rose Tart is a showstopper and although it may look complicated,  it is actually very simple to make. It does take a little time to roll the apples, but it can be prepared a day in advance.  The combination of dairy-free custard, with the nutty crust, and the sweet apples is delicious!
