Default Apple Tart

Here's a desert that's an easy standby for me, and tonight I tried it in the 550f degree oven a couple of hours after pizza. It worked great, cooked in about 10 minutes (instead of about 40 in the 375 degree gas oven) and the pastry had a great layered flaky texture:

Here's the recipe:

Plain pastry

1/2 stick butter
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cut butter into flour with a single table knife, until lumps are pea sized, add a splash of cold water, just enough to hold dough together, form into hamburger patty shaped disk, refrigerate 40 minutes.

Cinnamon sugar

Stir 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon into 1/2 cup of sugar. You won't need all of this, but it never hurts to have some around.

Peel, core and slice one large apple. I mince the little pieces that don't make nice slices, but whatever.

Roll out pastry, place on flat pan, fold, pinch, and flute edge. Sprinkle about half your cinnamon sugar on the shell, and shake to get it even. Arrange apple slices, and sprinkle some more sugar on top. Bake at 550f in the brick oven for 10 minutes. Your tart will be done when the juice is bubbling and the edge brown. Cool 10 minutes and eat.

Sounds great and looks wonderful! I like the fan arrangement.

If you have a butter pat cutter (like a cheese cutter only it cuts all the pats at once) you can precut the butter into cubes easily - it makes it easier to incorporate the butter into the flour. Pastry dough is best handled least.

Those things actually work? I've always been skeptical of them, myself. How well do they peel?

They should work, they've been making them pretty continuously since the mid-nineteenth century:

But remember: this recipe calls for one apple. You can probably struggle through with the old floating peeler.

OHH I think that plastic one looks fantastic! I have a metal one with a clamp type base but ever since I've lived in this house it's been a PIMA because the clamp is too small to work with my 2" thick countertops. Def. need to check out that HF one.
But for the record, they works FABULOUSLY...really the only way to go if you make a lot of apple pies in season like I do. I especially love that the apple slices end up a perfectly uniform thickness. The better to achieve dmun's lovely pattern with.

Cool. Having a drawer full of gadgets of questionable efficacy - some almost as old as that peeler in Dmun's post - makes one a bit on the skeptical side. I will probably buy one now - it's getting toward dessert season anyway.

Thanks!
