Yield: 8 slices for a 23 cm tart ring

  • 1/4 sugar (optional)

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

And for the crumble

  • 100g flour

  • 60g room temperature butter

  • 80g sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 370° F and lightly grease a 23cm tart ring if needed.

  2. Peel, core and cut the apples into cubes. If using sugar and/or cinnamon, sprinkle onto the apples and mix together.

  3. Line the ring with your short dough * and spread out the apples into an even layer. The amount of apples should be such as the layer is slightly above the edge of the ring -it will reduce when cooking. Set aside.
