Good morning! How are you today? I’m cleaning the house. It feels like I’m always cleaning the house though, so what’s new!
I thought it was time for a dessert recipe. It’s been a while since I’ve posted one, and even though I’m all about healthy living and eating, I’m also about treating yourself once in a while. Because life just wouldn’t be the same without a slice of Rainbow Cake!
Now that apples are in back in season, I wanted to make a dessert with, you guessed it, apples! Typically, when you think of an apple dessert you think of pie. Well, I do anyway. But, since I’ve never perfected the art of pie making, I thought it would be better to make an apple tart. Tarts are sooooo much easier to make than pies. And this recipe is super easy. And I made it even easier by buying a pre-made pie crust. Don’t judge. Just make it.
- 1 Pillsbury refrigerated pie dough
- 3 Granny Smith apples
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 Tbsp flour
- 2 Tbsp margarine, melter
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1 – 4 Tbsp hot water
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Peel, core, and cut apples into 1/2 inch wedges.
- In a large bowl, toss together apples, sugar, cinnamon, and flour.
- Roll out dough onto prepared baking sheet. Spread apple mixture over the center of the pie crust, leaving an inch of dough around the edges.
- Fold dough towards the center.
- Bake 25 – 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
- In a small bowl, mix together margarine, vanilla extract, and icing sugar. Add a tablespoon of hot water at a time an repeat until the icing reaches your desired consistency.
- Drizzle icing over warm apple tart, slice, and serve.
One word – DELICIOUS! I love the glaze drizzled over top, it’s the perfect finishing touch. The cinnamon and sweet apples are perfect. And I love the fact that you are getting a serving of fruit with this dessert
Now that you know how easy this is to make, I highly recommend you make it for the family…TONIGHT!
