Apple Yeasted Sugar Tart

When I have completed baking this, I wasn't really satisfied with the outcome.  Why?  I made a blunder on it as I didn't whipped the cream till it rise to soft peaks!   But anyway, this apple tart is delicious indeed when eaten when it is still warm!

Recipe adapted from Technicolor  and Table for 2.... or more
