Does anyone know how to make an apple pie like this one?
The apple pie was served at a dinner party and the host wouldn’t give up her recipe. It was on a dough crust and consisted of thinly sliced apples, about nine layers, and was sugary in texture as there was no ‘sauce’ like what you see with baked apply pies.
How do you bake apples to be ‘dry’ but still moist and layered with what? Topped with Cinnamin ice-cream, it was DELICIOUS!
That’s french style apple tart! The trick is to use fresh apples.
<<<<<<< French Apple Tart >>>>>>
7 1/2 ounces refrigerated pie dough
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 lbs fresh apples, peeled,cored and thinly sliced
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Place dough on a lightly floured surface.
Use a rolling pin to roll dough out and make it fit a 12 inch circle.
Place on a 12 inch pizza pan.
Combine sugar and cinnamon and then sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar mixture over dough.
Arrange apple slices on top of the dough, working from outside edge of dough to centre (like the spoke from a wheel.) Sprinkle apple slices with remaining sugar mixture Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes Combine honey and vanilla and microwave for 40 seconds on HIGH Brush honey mixture over warm tart Serve warm.
