I found the a nice recipe on the Food Network website. How can you go wrong with Paula Deen’s recipes. I made this apple tart using her crust recipe. We loved it.
3 medium apple, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoon apricot preserve
1 vanilla sugar
Preheat oven at 375F.
Put all ingredients for the crust in a food processor and pulse until the dough comes together. Continue to pulse until the pastry forms a ball.
Remove from food processor with lightly floured hands and place it in a removable bottom tart pan. Press out dough on the bottom and up the sides and bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and arrange apple slices slightly overlapping, in concentric circles over the top of of the crust. Since apple will shrink, make a well-packed circle. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and bake for 30 minutes.
Brush the apple slices with apricot preserve and bake for another 30 minutes. If the apricot preserve is very thick add a little water or orange juice to make it spreadable.
Carefully transfer the tart to a cooling rack and allow to cool.
Just before serving, remove the tart from the pan and dust with vanilla sugar.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.
