Rustic Apple Tart

Besides pumpkin desserts in the Fall, I love apple ones.  Here's as easy recipe for an apple tart.  It's size makes it better for smaller families.   I hope you give it a try,  maybe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

My new $ Tree mug says, "Soothing pleasures are the best.  Tea soothes the soul".

1 refrigerated pie crust (from 15-ounce package)
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
a little  freshly grated nutmeg, if desired
3-4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced (I ended up using only three as they were large)

TOPPING (optional)
2 T. flour
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. butter

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare crust as directed on package. Place on foil-lined 12-inch pizza pan. If necessary, press out any folds or creases. Brush crust with about 1/2 of the beaten egg white.

2. Mix sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in medium bowl. Toss with apples. Spoon into center of crust, spreading to within 2 inches of edges. Fold 2-inch edge of crust up over apples, pleating or folding crust as needed. Brush crust with remaining egg white.

3. Mix flour and brown sugar together.  Cut in butter until it forms crumbs.  Sprinkle on top of the apples.  If not using the topping, sprinkle the outside crust with about a teaspoon of sugar.

4.  Bake about 40 minutes or until apples are tender. Cool slightly before serving.

  4. Yum! Kitty, this tart looks delicious and I like the folding over of the crust too. Gives apple pie a whole new look. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe with us and coming by to tea. Have a delightful week and keep those yummy recipes coming!

  7. Oh thank you, this tart looks and sounds so good and easy! I'll be making this soon for hubby and me! What a cute verse on your mug, so true! Have a wonderful week!

  8. Oh Kitty - we definitely share taste buds! (Or as my friend Tonya says...Sisters that got lost in the lunch line=). I have a very similar recipe on my pile of 'to try' that I have been eyeing for some time. I love that it doesn't make a big batch too. Looks wonderful - love your new mug too. So glad you shared.

  9. Love the addition of corn starch, that's a little different and lighter than flour. Your tart is very pretty Kitty! I've been craving some sort of pie and think that needs to be addressed this weekend:@)

  10. Kitty, this doesn't sound too hard. I think I could make it. Loving the refrigerated crust.

  11. Oh boy - talk about comfort food - that looks INCREDIBLE, Kitty!!!!

  12. Oh the apple tart looks delicious. I will give it a try and especially with the vanilla ice cream.

  13. I have some apples in the refrigerator and they need to be put into this tart! I am pinning this and it will be on the menu this week! Thanks for sharing!
