Preheat the oven to 180 °C (conventional oven).
For the pastry: knead the ingredients together to form a smooth pastry.
Wrap in tin foil and chill for approx. 30 minutes.

For the filling: whisk the unchilled QimiQ Classic Vanilla smooth. Add the stewed apple and egg yolks and mix with a mixer until fluffy.
Whisk the egg whites and sugar until stiff. Fold alternately into the QimiQ mixture with the flour.
Pour the filling onto the pastry and top with the apple slices.
Warm the apricot jam, add the rum and whisk smooth and use to brush the apples.
