Happy Hump Thursdays, guys!
Do you remember the quick tutorial I did the day before on the super quick and delicious Maple Apple Tart ? I bet you do. With the lovely response that you guys have shown on the tutorial, here’s me sharing the recipe for all of you. It will help you recall what we did, as well as become your ‘Apple dessert’ for the season.
So the tutorial that we did has Maple syrup in it, but you can replace it with honey as well. This recipe is one of the top 5 apple desserts for me. For my sweet tooth measures, I do pop a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of it before I can relish it. And did I forget to mention, that its also my midnight craving dessert? #guiltyascharged 😉
For the tart shells
All purpose flour- 1 1/4 cup
Butter (softened)- 1/2 cup
Caster sugar- 5 tbsp
For the filling
Honey – 1/4 cup
Apples(peeled, cored and cubed)- 2 no.
Cinnamon powder – 1 tsp
Apples (thin sliced)- 2 no.
- For the tart shells, Beat the butter and sugar well. Once beaten, slowly add the flour to his mixture until it begins to form into a dough.
- Grease a 9” tart base with butter and transfer the dough onto it. Press the dough onto the bottom and evenly spread the dough to the sides of the tart pan. Use your fingers to firmly spread it to the edges.
- Refrigerate for about 35-40 minutes so that the dough comes together.
- Once the tart shell has chilled enough, take it out of the refrigerator, prick using a fork, and bake this tart shell into a preheated oven at 180C for around 12-15 minutes until the shell is golden brown.
- Until this bakes, we can prepare the filling for the tart. Cook the cubed apples, cinnamon powder and honey in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until apples are completely tender.
- Once the tart shell has baked, pour this filling on the tart. Arrange the thin apple slices on the top. Give it a light honey glaze using a brush and let it bake again for about 15 minutes at 180C.
- As I always specify, you must refrigerate the dough well. It can get very tempting for you to NOT do this step. But yes, you must!
- Make sure the apple slices are thin, place them in circular motion starting from the edges to the center, making a flower pattern.
- I would suggest you to try both the maple and honey versions of the tart in order to experiences the taste variations. You can also brush the tart again with honey/maple syrup once its baked.
