This is a simple recipe that tastes great. Apples are in season and the Saturday farmer’s market downtown offers a lot of options. You can make your own pie crust or buy the dough in the refrigerated section at the grocery store.2-3 apples, sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup walnuts (optional)
1. Toss apples in cinnamon, nutmeg, melted butter, vanilla and brown sugar.
2. Put pie crust on a round pizza pan or cookie sheet. Arrange apple mixture in middle of crust.
3. Fold the edge of the crust to cover an inch of the filling. The middle of the tart will remain uncovered.
4. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, until the crust is golden and the apples are soft.
5. Let cool for 15 minutes.
*It tastes best when you drizzle some glaze over it. You can make a simple glaze by taking some powdered sugar and adding milk until it’s thin enough to drizzle. You can also add a little vanilla, if you choose.
It’s best served warm, but is also good after it has completely cooled.
