Apple Cinnamon Fruit Tart


Fall time always makes me think of apple cider and caramel apples. Tonight I made an Apple Cinnamon Fruit Tart. I wanted to make a tart that was a little healthier than the normal tart filled with cream cheese. This tart is filled with juicy green apples that give tartness and balanced with a cinnamon sugar-coating to make all the flavors feel like Fall time.

Crust Ingredients:

1/3 Cup sugar

1/2 Cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Filling Ingredients:

3-4 Cups green apples, cored, peeled, and sliced thinly

1/4 Cup Orange Juice

1/3 Cup light brown sugar

1 Tablespoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon allspice

1 1/2 Tablespoon cornstarch

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a tart pan with butter and set aside.

In a stand mixer, cream together sugar and butter for about 2 minutes. Add flour, salt, milk, and vanilla. Mix until dough forms. If dough is still crumbly, add a little of milk at a time until dough forms.

On a flour surface, form dough into ball. Roll ball out into a circle an inch larger than your tart pan. You want the thickness to be a 1/4 inch. Lay over tart pan and gently form crust. If you are using a large tart pan like I did for this recipe, an easy way to transfer the dough to the pan is to gently roll it onto the rolling-pin. (see picture) Trim around the edge with a knife. Set aside.

For filling, combine apples and orange juice. Toss until coated. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cornstarch. Add to apples and toss until coated.

Pour apple mixture into crust.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until crust is golden and apples are bubbling.

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
