apple tart

i’ve made this apple tart – it’s alice waters’ recipe on smitten kitchen – twice now and it’s gorgeous and delicious and quite simple.


i followed the recipe closely for the most part. the crust i made in the food processor. just buzz up the flour, butter, sugar and salt. transfer to a bowl and flake in the water with a fork, just until it comes together. don’t over-work it. you can make ahead and keep in the fridge for a day or two.

for apples, i used three, but my tart pan is smaller than a regular one. fan the slices out starting from the outside and working your way in. it doesn’t have to be perfect – that flower in the middle covers a lot of ills.

the apple simple syrup you brush on at the end is also a great product to keep in the fridge. a spoonful of that in some bourbon is most agreeable…

this is a great go-to with a little wow-factor, which i will certainly be making again. try with salted caramel ice cream or bourbon whipped cream.
