Rustic Apple Tart

I make a lot of dessert dishes with apples. Why? Because every single person in our house will eat them, even hubby who rarely eats anything sweet, he likes apple stuff.

This is a recipe I clipped from a flyer from my local grocery store. I've modified it some as the original recipe made too much filling for the pastry, I didn't even end up using it all, so I'm adding those changes to be closer to what I did use.

And, yeah, it was darn tasty.

4 apples, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch wedges
2 T. lemon juice
1/4 C. flour
1/4 C. brown sugar
1 sheet (1/2 package) puff pastry, thawed
1 egg white, slightly beaten
1 T. butter
1/3 C. sugar
2 T. orange juice
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract

1. Combine apples and lemon juice. In another bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Toss together flour mixture and apple mixture.
2. Roll out puff pastry on a baking sheet. Brush pastry with beaten egg white; top with apple mixture. Dot with butter, and fold edges toward center.
3. Bake in a 350 oven for 40 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, combine sugar, juice, vanilla and almond until smooth. Brush glaze over tart. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.


As American as Apple Pie said...

YUM! That looks as good as Apple Pie. I have a recipe for a Rustic Pear Tart that is very similar.
