A no fuss, easy to make, simple apple tart that will be sure to please. Apples are a staple fruit, along with citrus, in getting us through these cooler months. In this dish, they’ll add a lot of warmth to your bellies and weekends!
In my experience, these keep well, and often taste better the next day.
If you’re making the pastry from scratch using the recipe linked below, you should be able to get 2 tarts made from the one batch of pastry (dependent on how thin the pastry is rolled and how large your tart tin is).
But if you have enough to make two, I’d go for it!
Recipe for Simple Apple Tart
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
1 sheet of pâte brisée
1 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp sugar
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
2. Core your apples, peel if preferred. Cut apple in half and then into thin slices.
3. Line your baking tin with your pastry.
4. Arrange your apple pieces onto the pastry. Gently brush on some melted butter, then lightly dust the apple with some sugar.
5. Place into the oven and cook for 40 minutes, or until appropriately browned.
6. You can serve warm or cold. Serve alone, or with cream or ice cream.
Have other fruit lying around at home as well? Pears work excellently for a tart as well. I’d follow this exact same process for a simple pear tart.
In the summer months you can start swapping out apples and pears for berries and stone fruit. Certainly something to look forward to!
I’m sure there are a lot of creative people out there reading. I would love to see what beautiful apple arranging you can come up with to create an edible work of art!
