Apple Tart and Miracle Crust

Tart Dough Recipe


fits a large tart pan, about 10 1/2 inches in diameter


5 ounces unsalted butter, cut into pieces

5 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups flour


Melt butter in a saucepan until bubbly. Add all the rest of the ingredients with a wooden spoon until it forms a ball and comes away from the side of the pan. Add more flour if necessary. Pat into a tart pan and fill with apples or other fruit.


Filling:


4 or 5 sliced apples,  depending of size - I used Granny Smith

sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon on top

2 T. butter

apricot preserves


Layer apple slices over uncooked dough in tart pan. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and dab with bits of butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on thickness of slices. Remove from oven. Melt some apricot preserves in a pan and while warm, spread over the apple slices.
