Dangerously Delicious Apple Tart

Snow White would surely be tempted by this mouthwatering apple treat. She can thank my daughter, Sylvie, for the recipe. The other day I was cooking dinner and Sylvie was watching the cooking channel (she wants her own cooking show!) when she ran in and insisted we make an apple tart for dessert. I let her know that I’ve never made an apple tart, only apple pie and that I wasn’t sure we had the ingredients. That wasn’t stopping her. She rattled off how to make a tart and I was shocked at the simplicity of such a fancy sounding dessert.

Here’s what Sylvie said:  Mom, all we need is crust, apples, sugar, apricot jam and a bottle of something.

Me: A bottle of something?

Sylvie: Yep, you put it with the apricot jam to make it like a glazed donut.

Me: Got it.

Sylvie: And we get to use my FAVORITE kitchen thingy, the apple slicer!!!!

Here we go…

We made it according to Sylvie’s instructions and a bit of guesswork and this tart turned out to be one of our favorite desserts.

Dangerously Delicious Apple Tart

Pie crust – store bought or homemade

3-4 apples – we had fuji

1 lemon

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup apricot jam

1 tablespoon apple juice

Preheat oven to 400. Roll pie crust out to a rectangle or if you have store-bought, just keep it round and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Peel, core and slice apples and squeeze juice from half a lemon over apples. Arrange apple on top of crust and sprinkle with about 1/2 cup sugar, then dot with butter. Bake for 35 minutes or until the apples get a bit dark and caramelized. Remove from oven. Heat the jam with apple juice until melted, then brush over the top and serve.
