Gratin of Apples and Lavender Honey
Gratin de Pommes au Miel de Lavande

Serves: 4 : Makes 4 servings

Preheat oven to 325ºF. Butter 4 ramekins. Peel, core and quarter the apples; cut into very thin slices. Heat butter in a skillet, add the apples and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until they are soft (about 4 mn). Add the honey and continue to cook until the honey has melted. Remove from heat. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs until light-colored. Add the apple/honey mixture and mix together. Pour the mixture in the ramekins and bake for 20 mn. Remove from the oven and cool. Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Beat the egg whites until stiff, then gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla extract. Fold in the sliced almonds with a spatula, then the flour, then the hot melted butter. On a buttered cookie sheet, make 8 mounds of the mixture and flatten them with a wet fork; bake for 10-12 min. When the cookies are done, place one on each dessert plate; unmold a gratin of apples on each cookie and top each gratin with another cookie. Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or crème anglaise.
