Apple tart for my 50th post!!!

This post today is my 50th post, and since I started this blog with a sweet cake, I also post something sweet today. :-) So far I enjoyed blogging and it has been fun to share recipes with you. I am thankful to the few who dropped me a note or comment and will be happy if more people give feedback or comment on my posts and recipes in the future.
This recipe is a simple apple tart which is not overly sweet. The dough is light, thin and crisp. Within no time half of the tart was easily finished in our house. :-)


- 1 ½ cups unbleached white flour
- ¼ cup brown sugar + 1 Tbsp. reserved
- ½ Tsp. salt
- 6 Tbsp. cold butter + 1 Tbsp. reserved ( I used vegan butter for this recipe)
- 1 ½ apples, quartered and finely sliced
- 1 Tsp. cinnamon
- 4 Tbsp. ice cold water


For the dough combine flour with salt and 1 Tbsp. brown sugar. Cut the 6 Tbsp. butter into cubes and add to the flour. Incorporate with your fingertips. Step by step add the ice cold water and knead to a smooth dough. Shape into a ball, wrap in plastic foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
In the meantime preheat oven to 375 F and grease a 9 ½ inch spring form.
Roll out the dough on a flour dusted surface and place into the form. Cover the bottom and press up slightly at the sides. Place the apple slices in a round on the dough. Mix ¼ cup brown sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle evenly on top. The sugar will caramelize and give a nice brown colour to the apples. Place the 1 Tbsp. butter in flakes on top. Bake for 50-60 minutes.
