In a small bowl, mix flour, almonds, 100g sugar and cinnamon together. Add cold butter and vanilla extract. Rub together with clean fingers until small crumbs form.
Unfold pastry and cut into a 25cm circle. Place on a large, ungreased baking tray. Brush with melted butter. Arrange apples in the centre of the pastry, leaving a 1cm wide border of pastry. Spoon almond topping gently over the apples, being careful it doesn't spill over the edges of the pastry.
Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
To make the custard: Place egg yolks and 3 tablespoons sugar in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Beat mixture constantly with a portable electric mixer. When foamy, add the marsala; continue to beat until the mixture begins to thicken. Do not overcook, or the mixture will curdle. Remove from heat.
