Tart Pastry with Baked Apples…whaaaa?

November 11, 2011

My parents recently went apple pickin’.  They returned with 5 BOXES stuffed with beautiful Fuji’s.  This was “gotta use these up in a variety of creative ways stab #1.”

It sounds difficult, looks impressive but a GREAT way to fool your family and friends.

When I was 9, I swore I would never ever make pie crust, pastry dough, puff pastry, phyllo…or what have you.  Oh, if I could travel back 17 years, I would tell lil ole Angie about this bad boy: 3 ingredient pastry dough–get outta here!

For the dough you will need:

  • 2 sticks of softened, unsalted Butter
  • 8 oz of softened Cream Cheese (full fat, of course)!
  • 2 cups Flour + 1 ts fine salt

For the yummy Filling:

  • 2 Granny Smith + 2 Fuji’s (reserve some thin slices for the top)
  • 2 tb melted Butter
  • 2 tb Sugar + 1 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 ts of freshly grated Nutmeg 
  • A nice squeeze from 1/2 a Lemon
  • Sugar in the Raw

Yea, there’s a lot of butter in this, but I promise, I’ve seen more (hell, I’ve consumed more).  Don’t freak out!  Butter is the Ambrosia for Humans, no?  Anyways, if you share this, you won’t feel too terrible =D
