APPLE,CRANBERRY TART


Apple the wonder fruit known for its luscious

looks,and health benefits is my subject today.

Apple is low in calories,and high with

antioxidants,and when turned into a dessert it’s

simply addictive.

I don’t want to go deeper into the health side,so

now for the recipe

Ingredients for the crust
1 cup flour
3 tblsp.butter
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
Bind all these together to form a dough.If needed add milk or water.(I did not add water or milk)

For the filling
4-5 granny Smith apples or any apples (I tried using both red and green)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 dried orange slices or 1 tblsp marmalade
1/2 tsp.lemon rind (grated)
2 tblsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp spice powder (cinammon,clove,cardamon)
a pinch of nutmeg powder
1/4 cup cranberries
a pinch of salt.
Core the apples and slice.(optional to peel).Mix all ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

For the topping
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar(preferably brown)
4-5 tblsp butter.
Mix all together and use as topping.

Method
Roll the pastry,Line a greased tart tin.Add some beans or uncooked rice and bake (180 degrees)for 10 minutes. (This is done to prevent the bottom of the pastry from puffing up.)When it’s light brown, remove from the oven.Take the beans off the tart, and add the apple filling.Press the topping of the oat filling and return to oven for another 35 minutes.(180degrees)
Serve with fresh cream,cranberry sauce,or custard.
