“Apple Streusel Tart”

Spread the love

It’s apple season and the holidays are here. Everybody likes apple pie around this time of year, but in our family they love a simple apple tart. My dad especially can’t seem to get enough of it around the holidays. This is a very easy dessert that everybody thinks took forever…only you will know how easy it is!

Arrange your apples in your tart shell, or just dump them in. it will cook the same either way, but if you’re making it for the holidays, i would arrange them. Every time you finish a layer, do them in the opposite direction.

Now we’ll make the streusel topping.

Add all your ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut the fat in until everything resembles small pea sized crumbs.

Cover the apples with about ¾ inch of the streusel topping.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until the crust is golden brown.

Allow to cool completely before you cut the tart. You can leave it on the counter wrapped, but in the fridge over night assures everything solidifies.

Slice and serve with ice cream and/or top it with a delicious caramel sauce. I have a pretty good recipe for a shelf stable one called Confiture Dulet. Trying them together is a match made in heaven.
