Rustic Apple Tart


This tart is so popular that I keep making it and I can’t seem to keep any in my house.  A family friend ran off with half of it last time I made it.  And the super picky eaters where all over it.  That means it was a super hit.

Very simple recipe

1 rolled out pie crust
3 to 4 organic granny smith apples ( depending on the size of the apples sometimes I use 3 and other times I use 4 so have 4 just in case you need it)
1 cup slivered almonds
1/4 teaspoon  organic cinnamon 
1 tablespoon organic salted butter
2 tablespoon organic sugar  divided
1/4 cup orange marmalade

Directions:  Lay your pie crust out on a cookie sheet.  I like to use a silicone slip pad on my cookie sheet for no sticking results.  In a food processor put your nuts, butter, cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon sugar.  Pulse until all nuts are ground up in a consistent medium sand like texture. Place all of this mixture evenly on the pie crust.  Leave a 1 inch boarder all the way around the pie crust free of nut mixture.   Peel and core each apple.  Cut each apple into 8 slices.  Lay apple slices on the nut mixture in a circular pattern. Until you have covered the nut mixture with apples.  Warm orange marmalade, use a basting brush to  evenly coat all the apples so that they look glazed.  If you don’t use all the marmalade that is ok.  Just make sure that all the apples have a glaze over them.  Fold the one inch pie crust boarder over the top of the edge of the apples.   Take the other tablespoon of sugar and pat into the top of the folded edge of the crust.  Pre heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 20-30 minutes until crust is just golden.  Let cool a few minutes and cut in triangles like a pizza.  Can serve warm or room temperature.  This is so easy and a true crowd pleaser.
