Apple Tart


·         1 cup sugar, divided

·         2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

·         1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

·         6 medium tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced

·         1 tablespoon butter

·         Pastry for a single-crust pie



1.      In a 10-inch cast-iron or ovenproof skillet, heat 3/4 cup sugar, stirring constantly until it is liquefied and golden brown. Remove from the heat.

2.      In a small bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon and remaining sugar. Arrange half the apples in a single layer in skillet. Sprinkle with half the sugar mixture. Arrange half the remaining apples in a circular pattern over sugar; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Place remaining apples over all, keeping the top as level as possible. Dot with butter.

3.      Roll out pastry to 11-inch. circle; place over apples, pressing gently to completely cover. Do not flute. Bake at 400°C until apples are tender and golden brown, about 50 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.
