Autumn Apple Tart with Caramel

Posted on 09/27/2013 by m_vredinka
Autumn for me is undoubtedly associated with apple pie. They are so warm, flavoured and sunny. What could be better? Unless apple pie with... cinnamon, of course! And becouse of cloudy and cold weather outside I want to add something special to this pie and make it with salted caramel glaze. Just imagine this delicate flavor of apples, slightly shaded cinnamon flavor, combined with cream caramel...

For the pastry:
350g all-purpose flour
150g cold butter, diced
1 egg (beaten)
water, if appropriate

For the filling:
5-6 solid green apples
juice and zest of half a lemon
cinnamon (a lot of cinnamon :))

For the caramel glaze:
60g brown sugar
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 tsp salt
4 tbsp heavy cream >30%

baking form 24-26 cm in diameter

1. Sift the flour into a large bowl and rub the butter in a small crumb. Add the egg and stir quickly to form a ball. If necessary, add water. Wrap the pastry in plastic bag and cill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

2. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lay out the bakin form with the pastry. Prick the bottom of the tart with a fork, then line the tart with baking parchment and fill with baking beans. Bake it for 10-15 minutes and then remove the beans and bake for another 5 minutes.

3. Switch the oven temperature to 180°C. Unpeeled and unseeds apples cut into thin slices. Place them onto the tart and generously sprinkle with lemon juice. Also sprinkle the top of the tart with lemon zest and cinnamon. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Melt the sugar into skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove the melted sugar from heat and add the butter and the salt. Stir it gently. Add the cream and heat for another 2-3 minutes over low heat. Give the mixture to cool for 10 minutes.

5. Use a brush and gently glaze the tart with caramel syrup. Well done!
Serve warm. Where I live now is very cold and this tart is suits purfect for me then it's warm.
I hope you'll like it also :)

When you should try it )) To my mind (taste:)), salted caramel does not spoil the taste of apples )

Cooking it now. I've decided to add walnuts to the apple layer. Seems to be a great idea for this cake.
