I made this recipe with a variety of berries because i didn't have any apples on hand and it turned out beautifully. I omitted the cinnamon because I didn't think it would compliment the berries. It was so easy because the filling didn't need to be cooked. My daughter loved the pie! I will definitely make this again.
I avoid making pastry. I'm not good at it. However I made this tart for guests last week and I was told it was the best pastry they had ever eaten. The tart was fabulous and the pastry was so easy to make and handle!
I substituted whole wheat for one third of the flour, and because I didn't want to crack open another egg, I used the egg white left over from the crust, mixed it with a little cream, and used that for the egg wash.
The crust is moist and flaky, the apples not too sweet - ill be making this again!!!
Tasty tart. After mixing the apples with the sugar, salt, and cinnamon I microwaved them for about 6-8 minutes, stirring in between. The reason is when cooking apples they sometimes don't cook as quickly as the crust browns. This insures that they are all cooked properly. The crust was rustic and went well with the pie.
