Rustic Apple Tart for Two

Simply Luxurious
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Servings 2 people

Ingredients
  

Pastry

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cold water more or less depending upon the humidity

Filling

  • 1 medium-large apple (your choice, but one with flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ice cream (dulce de leche is my choice)

Instructions
 

Pastry

  • Make the dough at least 30 minutes ahead of time
  • In a food processor, combine the flour, butter, sugar and salt.
  • Then gradually stream in the water. Watch the consistency, you may not need the entire tablespoon. Don’t let it get too clumpy, just barely sticking together.
  • Roll into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill.

Filling

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees (230 celcius) .
  • Peel, core and cut into narrow slices the apple. Set aside for a moment.
  • Take out the pastry from the refrigerator and using flour and sugar on a cutting board or pastry cloth, roll out the dough to about 1/8″ thickness. As you can see from my picture, the less symmetrical the better. Just ensure that you have enough area to lay out your apples.
  • Lay out the apples, slightly layered on top of each other. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top.
  • Place in the oven for 20-30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
  • As soon as you take it out of the oven, drizzle the honey over the apples to add a touch of sweetness and a little glisten.
  • Either four small slices are available or two moderate sizes. Top with Italian Talenti vanilla bean gelato (or any other ice cream or gelato you prefer), pair with a hot cup of tea or coffee and bon appétit!
