Easy Apple Tart

Posted in : Baked goods, Dessert, Extras, Uncategorized on by : Marisol Chancellor

For some reason (because it’s perfectly delicious) I always like to make an apple dessert when I have friends over. I have made many versions of it but this “Easy Apple Tart” was for sure a winner. It is semi-homemade since I used a store bought pie crust, and boy was it easy and fast, and delicious!

Don’t get me wrong, I love making my crust all from scratch but I also love easy shortcuts like this one. I’m all for no-fuss entertaining.

I love serving my apple pie with vanilla ice-cream or whip cream but, It really is delicious on its own.

Easy Apple Tart

Ingredients

  • 1 Store bought pie crust
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 1/2 stick of cold butter, small diced
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • Turbinado sugar (optional)
  • 1/4 apricot jam
  • Powder sugar for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees
  2. Peel the apples and cut them in half through the stem. Remove the stems and cores using a melon baller or a knife. Slice the apples crosswise in 1/8″ thick slices.
  3. Place the pie crust onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Arrange the apple slices overlapping in a circular pattern starting on the outside, (leaving a 2″ marging to fold over at the end) working your way inward.
  5. Sprinkle the apples evenly with the sugar and dot with the cold butter.
  6. Fold the edge of the pie crust over in a free form fashion.
  7. Sprinkle the edge of the tart with turbinado sugar (optional)
  8. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until brown.
  9. Stir the apricot jam with a spoon until it becomes smooth. You can also add a teaspoon of water. Brush the tart generously with the apricot jam. Sprinkle with powder sugar before serving.
  10. Enjoy!
