3-step apple tart


Have you gone apple picking this year?  If you have, then you probably have a lot of apples on your hands.  May I suggest making a quick apple tart with all those apples?  Apple tart need not be daunting; this recipe is super simple with only 3 steps.  It's not a very sweet pie; the apples are really the heroes  here.  Also, I cheated and used frozen pie crust, which I highly recommend doing when you just want to make a quick apple tart to enjoy for yourself and the family.

Here's the recipe!

3-Step Apple Tart
adapted from Smitten Kitchen

Ingredients:
Tenderflake pie crust, thawed overnight
2 lbs gala apples
2 tbsp butter, melted
5 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon


Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400F and spay a pie shell with cooking spray.  Peel and core apples.  Cut them in half and then slide lengthwise so that you have nice "c" shaped slices.

2. Roll out the pie crust on a floured surface into a 14" circle and about 1/8 inch thick.  Place the pie crust unto the pie shell and then arrange the apple slices in the pie.  Sprinkle 4 tbsp sugar and the cinnamon onto the apples.

3.  Fold over the pie crust sides onto the apples and brush the apples and pie crust edges with the melted butter.  Sprinkle the pie crust edges with the remaining 1 tsbp sugar.  Bake at 400F for 45 minutes until the crust is golden brown.

Enjoy!
