The air smells like apple spice and pumpkin candles, an ungodly amount of leaves are falling on my Rav4, and I keep getting yelled out when I put Christmas music on…..it must be fall! One of my favorite parts about fall are my friendsgivings. I love my family, don’t get my wrong, but I really enjoy seeing friends that I haven’t seen in months. Especially now that I’m in SLO! For this year’s friendsgiving I was in charge of a salad and a dessert. I’ll be posting about the salad soon but spoiler alert – it’s AMAZING! This salad is so hearty and filling; perfect for your fall festivities.
Anywhooooo, back to the tarts. This was my first time making this little beauties and I have to say I am impressed. I got the idea while I was looking through instagram. I saw a quick video of these tarts and thought I could make that without a recipe! For those of you that know me, you know that I’m not great with following a recipe, anyway.
- 2 pre-made pie crusts (or homemade, if you’re feeling fancy)
- 3 large apples, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 T cinnamon
- 1 t lemon juice
- 3 T granulated sugar
- 1 egg white, for egg wash
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Begin by rolling out one pie crust and cutting small circles.
- Place foil over baking sheet and add the circles on top of foil.
- In a large bowl, add apples, brown sugar, 2 T cinnamon, lemon juice, and 2 T granulated sugar. Mix well.
- Scoop small portions of apple mixture onto pie crust circles.
- Cut strips out of second pie crust. Create a lattice with the strips over the apple mixture.
- Use the same circle cutter and place over tart to get rid of any additional crust.
- Egg wash and sprinkle remaining cinnamon and sugar over tarts.
- Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until golden brown.
