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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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 item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Man lasted all but five minutes after I brought it out :0) enough said ..... item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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 !! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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). item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
