Rustic Apple Tart

A bag of apples, and the desire to make a little something sweet for dessert over the weekend, resulted in this rustic apple tart. It took roughly a half hour to assemble, an hour in the oven, and was heavenly served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! 
For the crust:

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup ice water

For the filling:

  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cut into 1/4″ slices
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into 6 pieces

1. In the bowl of a food processor combine flour, salt, and butter. Pulse until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add ice water until dough begins to clump. Form into a disk by hand, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate dough for an hour.

2. Preheat oven to 400º. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 13″ round. Transfer dough to a parchment lined baking sheet.

3. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Measure out 2 tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar with a tablespoon of flour, and sprinkle it over the dough.

4. Arrange the apple slices on top in overlapping concentric circles leaving a 2 inch from the edge. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and cinnamon, dot with butter, and fold the dough over the apples. Bake for 60 minutes.
