This is a quick, I-have-a-craving, go-to, recipe that I use throughout the year. For when I not only want to use any leftover pastry but when I don't want to stare at an entire pie. No, I don't trust myself. I will eat a piece every day until it's finished.😂 This is also a great way to get the kids some kitchen practice. Give them the leftover pastry to work with while you make the standard size pie. Watch me make it here.

Apple Tart For 1 or 2 – Recipe

Ingredients

  • Leftover pastry. About 1/4 of a single pie crust, on average.
  • 1 medium-large cooking apple, of your choice. Cleaned, cored, peeled & cut diagonally. 6-8 slices per half.
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, unpacked
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp maple syrup or omit
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F/204°C.
  2. In a small bowl add your sliced apple, along with all of your ingredients. Tossing so that the apple slices are coated well. Set aside.
  3. Roll out your left over pastry, placing in in a prepared single serving oven proof dish.
  4. Add your apples & bring the edges of the pastry up. The pastry does not need to close at the top.
  5. Bake in oven for 25-ish minutes. The first 10 minutes at 400°F/204°C. The last 15 minutes at 350°F/176°F.
  6. Check to make sure that the apple is cooked through. I use a sharp knife, which when inserted into the apple slice, easily passes through.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  8. Toss in nuts, seeds, dried fruit & or lemon zest to add a little extra flavour & nutrition.
