Last week I had several apples that were at risk of not making it into anyone’s belly so I decided to make something with them. What came from this last minute decision was a masterpiece that Jack still talks about and that will surprise and delight your guests this Holiday season.
What you’ll need:
- 3 cups of apples, roughly cut into small cubes
- 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 ready to bake crust from Immaculate Baker
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 3 Tbs cornstarch
- 3/4 cup hot water or apple juice depending on sweetness of apples. I used water.
- Preheat your oven to 375.
- Add all of your ingredients to a sauce pan on medium heat minus the water/juice. After about 1 minute, slowly add your water and stir continuously. Your sauce will thicken but give it time. Heat on the stove top for about 5 – 8 minutes or until everything is combined and you’re apples are in a rich and thick sauce.
- Spread your crust over a tart pan like this one. (The ones with the push up center are my favorite)
- Fill the pan to the top and gently shake the pan so that it evens out. I cut out pumpkin shapes from the extra dough and added them to the top of my tart as a decoration.
- Bake for 18 – 20 minutes.
- Let cool. Eat and enjoy. So easy!
