We have one more day of somewhat summer weather this week and then we start the road to fall. We spent much of August socked in with terrible smoke conditions due to all of the fires in Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Canada. All of that time spent with the windows closed and the air conditioning running 24/7 made my brain think the seasons had already changed. I found myself making soup and comfort foods like this delicious apple tart.
Now that summer is winding down, my vegetable garden has been cleaned out, and the mornings are calling for sweaters, I find myself day dreaming about all of the wonderful options for fall baking and cooking.
1 Pie Crust From Heaven Crust Portion
6 Cups of Your Favorite Apples, sliced
Juice of 1 Whole Lemon
3/4 Cup of Coconut Sugar
1/4 teaspoon of Kosher Salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of Ceylon Cinnamon
2 teaspoons of Pure Vanillla Extract
6 teaspoons of Dairy Free Butter
Add the sliced apples, lemon juice, coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla to a large bowl and let sit for one hour, tossing every 15 minutes.
While the apples are marinating, press the dough into a 9×1 inch tart pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Overlap the apples in a circle starting at the outside edge and work your way to the middle. Drizzle half of the marinating sauce over the apples. Dollop the butter over the top of the apples.
Bake for 50-60 minutes (it will depend on your oven) until apples are fork tender. Cover the tart with loosely with foil at the 30 minute mark so that the apple tips don’t burn. Drizzle the tart with the remaining marinade and cool before serving.
