Rustic Cinnamon Apple Tart

by lisa on October 9, 2017 · 0 comments

Watching the news lately has been depressing. Natural disasters, a mass shooting, politicians acting like spoiled kids…’s just too much for me to watch. I’m sure I’m not alone in this.   Turning on the TV makes me want to curl up with a blanket and watch a feel good movie.

Some comfort food would go good with the movie. I am not much of a baker but I love having a piece of homemade pie. It is especially good during apple season when I have a nice bag of fresh picked apples. My mother and father in law have a beautiful apple tree where we came home with a bag of delicious apples. They were perfect for baking with.

I shouldn’t say I am not a baker. I am more of a lazy baker. I don’t like making homemade pie crust and I don’t like peeling apples. So guess what? I didn’t do either. I bought a premade pie crust and left the peels on the apples. I like the rustic look and texture of the peels anyway.

This tart is simple to make. You basically slice a few apples very thin and add some sugar and cinnamon. Pile them all on top of a crust and roll up the sides. Brush the crust with an egg yolk and no one will know its not a homemade one. Sprinkle the top with a little extra cinnamon and sugar. Bake in the oven and a rustic apple tart is ready to eat.

Make one of these. Be kind. Invite a friend over or bring this to a friends house. Don’t watch the news. Watch Forest Gump or Beauty and The Beast.  Or how about my new favorite show This Is Us. Most people are good. Have dessert with a friend. Eat a rustic cinnamon apple tart.
