Ingredients

Number of serving: 2
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup confectioners sugar

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons good quality cold butter

Zest of 1 lemon

2 large eggs

a splash of milk

4 large Granny Smith apples

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 1 teaspoon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons sprinkling sugar

1 egg white mixed with a splash of water for an egg wash

Preparation

  • Sift the flour and the sugar into the food processor.
  • Add the butter and pulse until the mixture becomes crumbly and fine. Add the lemon zest. Pour in the eggs and the milk. Pulse for a few more seconds until the mixture comes together.
  • Flour your work surface and gently work the dough together until it is in a ball. Do not overwork. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix all of the above ingredients well, except for the sprinkling sugar and egg white.
  • Dust your work surface with flour. Cut your dough into two or three pieces, depending on how large of a tart you want.
  • Hand roll the cut dough into a ball, and roll out with a rolling pin into a circle that is about 18″ in diameter, turning frequently to make sure it is not sticking.
  • Sprinkle more flour as necessary. Trim the sides to make a pretty even circle and place it on the baking sheet.
  • Pile the filling high in the middle, leaving about 3 inches around the edge. Fold the edge over the filling, overlapping as necessary, folding and pinching layers to make a tight edge. Brush the edge with the egg wash and sprinkle with the sugar.
  • Bake the tart at 400 degrees until the crust is golden and and the apples are tender, about 55 minutes.
  • Carefully transfer to a rack to cool. Slice into wedges and serve with fresh whip cream or ice cream.
