Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 5mm. Using an up-turned 20cm plate cut a round of pastry out. Lay the round onto a non-stick baking sheet and pierce all over with a fork.
Using your hands, roll the marzipan into a small ball and then flatten it into a 7.5cm disc. Sit the marzipan in the centre of the pastry.
Peel, core and thinly slice the apples. Arrange the slices in an overlapping layer around the outside of the pastry first and then the remaining slices in two rows across the centre, covering the marzipan.
Brush all over with the melted butter and sprinkle with the sugar. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes to relax. The tart can also be frozen at this point and baked from frozen when required. Bake the tart for 20-25 minutes until the apples are soft and catching colour and the pastry has puffed up slightly.
Meanwhile, prepare the pecan caramel syrup. Melt the sugar in a small pan over a low heat until just turning a caramel colour.
Add the butter, stirring until melted and then the cream. Simmer gently for 3-4 minutes to give a rich butterscotch type sauce. Gently heat the pecan nuts in a small dry pan for 1 minute to bring out their natural oils. Stir the pecans through the sauce.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
