Easy Rustic Apple Tart


2 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch ground allspice

Pinch salt

1 sheet ready rolled pie dough

All-purpose flour, for dusting

Cooking spray

2 tablespoons melted butter

3 tablespoons peach preserves, warmed


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Toss the apples, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, and salt together in a large bowl.

Roll the pastry, on a lightly floured surface, into a 12-inch round. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Unfold the pastry on the baking sheet. Arrange the apple slices on top in overlapping concentric circles to within 3 inches of the edge. Fold the dough over the apples in a free-form fashion. Brush the crust with melted butter and drizzle the remaining butter over the apples.

Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 40 minutes.

While tart is cooking, put the peach preserves into a microwavable bowl and microwave until syrupy, about 20 seconds.

Remove the tart from oven and brush with the warmed preserves. Pull the parchment paper off the sheet tray and transfer the tart to a wire rack to cool. Cut as desired and serve.
