For the mascarpone cream quenelle (the day before)
100g of liquid cream 30% MG

Whip the cream and mascarpone with an electric mixer. Gradually add the caster sugar. Fill the silicone mould in the shape of dumplings and place in the freezer

In a saucepan, heat the water, sugar and glucose to 103°. Add the gelatine and vanilla off the heat. Mix well and blend if necessary. Strain and set aside in a cool place.
For the caramel
Make the caramel in a pan with the water and sugar. Once it has a nice colour, lower the heat and add the butter cut into pieces in several batches. Mix and pour into the moulds.
Cut out apples with a strip cutter and roll them in your moulds on the caramel. Bake for 40 minutes at 160°C. Pack the apples when they come out of the oven.
For the sweet pastry
20g icing sugar
1 egg yolk
1 pinch of salt
Mix all the ingredients together, roll out and put in the fridge. Roll out the pastry with a rolling pin and cut it out with a cookie cutter to the diameter of your tin. Place on top of the apples and bake for another 40 minutes. Leave to cool a little and remove from the tin.
Glaze the frozen dumplings by heating the glaze to 35°C and place on the tartlets. Decorate with gold leaf.
