|Rustic Apple Tart|
Fall has arrived and I can't seem to get enough apples in any shape or form. I am always drawn to the look of a rustic tart because it doesn't have to look perfect, that's where the beauty comes in. Although, it looks like something you would find in a bakery.
I like to mix up my apples and use a mixture of sweet and tart....Granny Smith, Macoun, Rome Beauty or Golden Delicious. I find Macintosh and Cortland get very mushy. This is a delicious recipe that's so easy and fast to make.
- 4 apples, peeled and sliced (I used Granny Smith & Macoun this time)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 Tbsp flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 pie crust or use Pillsbury rolled crust
- 1 egg white mixed with drop of water
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- large sugar crystals for decorating
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients and toss together.
- Place crust on a large cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Lightly brush the crust with the egg wash, leaving a 2" border. Sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar on the crust. This will help prevent the crust from getting soggy.
- Pour the apples into the center of the crust and fold the edges up. Brush the edges with the egg wash and sprinkle with the sugar crystals.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until the crust is golden. Let the tart cool before moving it to another platter.
