Apple tart

Apple tart

dessert recipes | serves 6-8

1. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5, and slide in a baking sheet to heat up. Peel, then finely slice your apples into a bowl, tossing them in the lemon juice to stop them turning brown. Mix through the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
2. Take your pastry out of the fridge and, on a floured surface, roll it out to 4mm thick. Using a floured knife, cut around a 26cm plate – don’t drag the knife, instead make downward cuts to encourage rising later. Use a 24cm plate to score a 2cm border around the edge (again, don’t drag), then pop on a separate floured baking sheet.
3. Arrange the apples in a circular pattern within the border until the pastry is covered, and wash the pastry border (not the apples) with beaten egg. Then gently knock the pie edge with a knife to encourage rising. Chill for 20 minutes.
4. Slide the tart onto the preheated baking sheet, and bake for 20–25 minutes, until the edges are golden. Meanwhile, make a glaze by melting the conserve in a pan, then sieve it and brush it over the cooked tart. Serve warm with crème fraîche.
