This holiday season I decided to try making a fruit tart inspired by those beautiful medieval-style tarts. I wasn't really keen on making a super sugary dessert though. I was thinking more of breakfast pastry type of thing. I wanted something tasty, healthy and low-sugar. Preferably 5 ingredients or less for a speedy dessert.
After a bit of experimentation, I came up with the recipe for the breakfast apple tart pictured above. It even ended up being mostly organic too! And how did it taste? Kids and adults both agreed .... really yummy!!
Breakfast Apple Tart
1 pre-made organic pie/tart crust
5 organic braeburn apples (or other apples good for baking)
4 T organic salted butter
1/4 c. raisins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel, core and slice the apples very thinly. Line the bottom of the pie crust with apple slices, then continue to build up layers, wedging apple bits into the gaps to make a nice solid apple filling (adding raisin in as you go). Push lightly with your hands to compact the filling. Melt the butter and brush *all* of it evenly over the top. Bake for 45 minutes, then turn heat to 400 degrees for 15 minutes to brown the top (careful .. you don't want it to burn; please check on it as it is baking). Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Cool, then place in the refrigerator until **completely & absolutely chilled** (a few hours) before cutting and serving.
