Apple Tart

Apple Tart

This incredible tart is going to steal the show with its perfect, buttery homemade crust and apple-filled center. Brushed with apricot preserves and sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg, each bite of this amazing pastry is bursting with sweet, tart, and nutty flavor. While this looks similar to an apple pie, the apple filling and crust taste a lot different. This apple tart recipe uses a technique called ‘macerating’ to soften fruit instead of making a thick apple filling with cornstarch, butter, and sugar. To macerate your apples, you soak them in a sugar mixture until they soften. This way, they become malleable enough to arrange in your crust. Because there is no filling, the end texture of this tart is more firm and crisp than an apple pie.

I, personally, like the way this tart tastes more than an apple pie. It’s beautiful, too! You are able to get neat, crisp slices without globs of apple filling spilling out. This apple tart is light and delicious when eaten on its own, but is also amazing a la mode with a scoop of homemade ice cream on top. Fresh whipped cream or crème fraîche taste great as toppings as well. I know you are going to love this tart as much as I do! It just takes a little prep and arranging of apple slices to create a tasty, lavish dessert. Honestly, putting this tart together is one of my favorite parts of this whole process. It’s so fun to see something beautiful come together!
