A Simple Apple Tart, With Love

I have noticed, how I feel in the kitchen makes a big difference in the outcome. Hurried, reluctant, angry, mindless cooking produces unsavory results. Happy, peaceful, loving, state of mind, almost always leads to delicious moments. Today, I am making a simple, no fuss apple tart, in preparation for dinner with a few of our neighbors.

  • dough: 1/2 lb of flour, 1 stick of butter (melted, and mixed w/ a bit of water to cool), pinch of salt
  • organic apples
  • unsweetened organic apple sauce
  • make a nest in middle of flour
  • pour butter in the middle
  • add salt
  • mix in dough
  • butter baking dish
  • roll dough on floured surface
  • place in the dish
  • line with sliced apples
  • cover with apple sauce
  • 375 degree oven
  • 45' or until apples are slightly browned
  • let cool
  • optional: you may want to sprinkle with sugar

PS- this recipe makes enough dough for two tarts; I usually freeze extra so I have already made dough for next time


  1. This sounds easy & looks delicious. Do you start layering the apples from the outer row working in, or the other way around?

  2. Good to see you here, Carolyn! (@Wadesmom, I assume it's you . . . )
    I go from the outer row in, but it does not really matter!
