A favourite recipe I have not made for ages. I baked two yesterday, for Thomas, but he was a no show, he will be home in just over an hour...
Yummy, I had some for breakfast this morning!
Rustic Apple Tart Recipe
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. sugar
dash of salt
7 1/2 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup ice water
2 lbs. tart apples, peeled and sliced
3 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. cloves
Combine flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in ice water until mixture holds together. Press into a ball and let rest 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface into a 15" circle. Place dough circle in a 9" pie plate, spread out, centered.
Combine apples with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Place apple mixture on the dough in the pie plate, spread out evenly, dot with butter.
Fold the edges of the dough over apples, pleating to make it fit. You will have an uncovered center. Moisten pastry with water or milk and sprinkle lightly with sugar, I used coarse sugar for this.
Bake at 400° F in the upper third of the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until apples are tender and partially caramelized. Rotate pan halfway through baking.
Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
