Rustic Apple Tart

“Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness.” – Jane Austen

I received my annual bag of freshly picked apples from my neighbor, George, the other day. So this morning I was flipping through my recipes to see what delightful things I can bake with them. I found this one that I had copied down from Heather Bullard’s blog last year… It looks so easy and delicious! And I love Fall baking because it makes the house warm and smell wonderful. Here’s the recipe:

Rustic Apple Tart

1 disc of store bought pie pastry dough

2-3 apples {peeled, cored and chopped}

5 Tablespoons of sugar

1 Tablespoon of cornstarch

½ teaspoon of nutmeg

½ teaspoon of cinnamon

¼ stick of butter cut into small cubes

1 egg mixed with 2 teaspoons water or milk

3 Tablespoons of Sugar in the Raw

Unroll your pie dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. In a separate bowl, combine apples, sugar, cornstarch and spices. Fill the center of the pie shell, pile it high in the middle. Gently fold the outside of the shell into the center to hold the fruit inside. Dot apples with butter cubes. Brush the outside of your tart with the egg wash, and sprinkle the crust with the Sugar in the Raw. This will give it a crunchy crust and make it look spectacular! Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.

Serve with whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream, and enjoy!
