Rustic Apple Tart

Total Time:
55 min
15 min
40 min

1 tart

  • 2 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch ground allspice
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 sheet ready rolled pie dough
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons peach preserves, warmed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Toss the apples, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, and salt together in a large bowl.

Roll the pastry, on a lightly floured surface, into a 12-inch round. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Arrange the pastry on the baking sheet. Put the apple mixture in the center of the pastry and spread evenly to the edges, but leaving enough dough to fold over to create a crust on the rim. Brush the crust with melted butter and drizzle the remaining butter over the apples.

Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 40 minutes.

While tart is cooking, put the peach preserves into a microwavable bowl and microwave until syrupy, about 20 seconds.

Remove the tart from oven and brush with the warmed preserves. Pull the parchment paper off the sheet tray and transfer the tart to a wire rack to cool. Cut as desired and serve.

    Delicious and so easy!
    It was delicious, although I changed it a little. I added raisens and some walnuts and it was great. Ate warm out of the oven with my homeade ice cream. Thank you
    This is the BEST EVER apple tart! I added blackberries and it was delicious! So easy to make (especially with a store bought crust and you could add any kind of fruit you want. Next time I'm trying apples with pears or peaches or maybe blueberries. The possibilities are endless! Thanks, Gina and Pat...I LOVE your show and your recipes!
    Man lasted all but five minutes after I brought it out :0) enough said .....
    This is great and so easy. I used a Trader Joe flat pie crust, piled the sugared apples in and added a handful of chopped walnuts on the top. The only other different ingredient I used was apple fig jam for the peach. I've made it twice this way and it is delicious. I look forward to making it (time willing) with homemade pastry.
    I made this the other day. I wish I had taken the review about cooking it longer. I also think I need to use smaller apples, 4 seemed like to many. However, this tart tastes wonderful. I used apricot preserves instead (didn't have peach)- so good. Will make adjustments next time!!
    I made this using mixed berries and I followed the instructions for the apple tart, omitting the cinnamon, and made a crumble top for it, OMG it was great : ) we topped it with whipped cream and the family went wild !!! Thanks for the insperation : ) Grandma and Grandpa wanted a whole one, so I guess we will be making this again : ) Thanks it was fun !!
    I made the Rustic Apple Tart today and it was absolutely delicious. I used small minature pie crust and made 5. I don't measure anything, I just cook by instinct. I had a friend over and we both were in heaven. I did not have any allspice, so I used nutmeg. Because nutmeg is so strong, I had to tone it down with a little white sugar and it came out very well. I only used one type of apples (granny smith). I have to make that again. That will be my dessert of choice at my next event.
     I felt like Pat (rubbing my feet together).
    This is a simple, yet delicious desert that I have made 3 times already. I used 1 granny smith apple because I didn't want it to be "too" tart. Heads up on the 350 baking temperature. The first time I baked at 350 it took forever!! I think that's wrong. I bake it at 400 for atleast an hour. Turns out great everytime. Nice presentation.
    This is a fantastic dessert, especially when you are short on time (or patience). I love the combination of apples, the flavor is really great.
    I made this dish the day after viewing it on tv. It was wonderful. It was easy. My family loved it so much that I had to make another one two days later but double the size. Both nights there were no left-overs.
    I made this last night and it came out wonderful. I was really happy because it looked just the way the Neely's made it in the episode. When you eat this apple tart you dont feel guilty because it is mostly made with apples and only one layer of crust, I will definitely make this again!
    This apple tart is off the chart in excellence. I made my own pie crust, because I feel this tart respects my homemade pie crust. The peach preserves gives it an added taste that is not anticipated. I will definitely make this recipe again and again. Thank you Neelys.
    I am not a pro and want to see what the dish is supposed to look like when finished. Please give us recipes with pictures.
    This is a great recipe because you don't need a grocery list of ingredients. I followed the recipe to a T and it came out just like the Neely's. If you don't have peach preserves almost any light preserve will do. The best reason to make this is it's really goooood! Not too sweet and taste great with Vanilla ice cream. I love the Neely's. Keep up the good recipes Gina and Patrick!
    I was watching the show today and they made it look so simple and delicious; I tried it for our dessert tonight. As I was watching, I realized I had all the ingredients they used so I tried it. And..... my family loved it!! Thank you for a new favorite dessert recipe.
    We had a dessert potluck and everyone loved this pie. I am not a baker, so the fact that it was quick and easy was perfect for me.
    This is a nice and easy reoipe. The tart was good but not sweet,so easy to make.KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK NEELYS.
    I just made it and it was so easy. I didn't have peach preserves so I tried Apricot and it is yummy
