Rustic Apple Tart
3 Granny Smith apples
3 Macintosh apples
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup flour
6 tbsp cold butter
4 tbsp cold water
1/2 tsp salt
First start off with preheating the oven to 425 degree F so that it can be ready when you are done with the preparation.
I made the pie crust the night before because I didn't want to slave away in the kitchen all day. Also by doing that it gives the crust some time to cool down. To be honest, I should have just went with store bought because I wouldn't have had to fight the dough with the rolling pin early in the morning 😫
You want to get a medium size bowl and mix the flour and the salt together. I usually cut the butter into small square before throwing it in because it's not as harsh on your biceps if you have to mix it by hand. Once you have mixed in the butter you want to start adding the water until the mixture is smooth. If you are making this the day of you can go ahead and start rolling it out after you have given it some time to cool. Don't worry if the edges are weird you can just cut them off once you have added it to the tart pan. Also the messier the more rustic 😏😉
If you are saving this for later I would recommend rolling it out a bit then storing it in the refrigerator because there is LITERALLY nothing worse then staring at a giant frozen ball of dough in the morning and trying to brainstorm ways you can roll it out and bake it in the next hour before your guests come over.
Now with the apples...
I divided up the apples by color because I just thought it would look cooler. Also I'm a little lazy and put the apple straight in the pan after removing the core and cutting them lengthwise.
After I cut the apples and tried to fit them in the dish I poured all the dry ingredients on top.
Then I drizzled some lemon juice on the top and threw on a few cubes of butter because butter is life.
I started the tart on 425 degrees F for 15 minutes and then I dropped it down to 375 degrees F for the next 40 minutes. But some ovens are weird and I suggest looking in there every once in awhile because that's what I do. I do not trust my oven.
