For making the Crust
180 grams plain flour
90 grams butter
60 grams sugar
1 egg yolk
¼ teaspoon salt
cold water to knead.
Combine flour and butter and rub it till the texture resembles like bread crumbs. Add yolk, sugar, salt and water to knead into a soft pliable dough. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
2 medium green apples
2 medium red apples
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1teaspoon cinnamon powder
sugar ( optional)
Butter to brush
Apricot preserve to brush
Peel, core and dice the green apples. Cook them in a pan with ½ cup of water and 1tablespoon of lemon juice. Simmer on a low fire till the apples are soft. Add the cinnamon and keep it aside.
Roll the dough and slide into the baking pan lined with a butter paper. Tuck the edges and remove the excess. Preheat the oven at 175 ‘c and bake it for 5 to 7 minutes.
Remove the half baked tart and fill it with cooked green apples and arrange the red sliced apples on the top in a circular fashion. Brush them with butter and Apricot preserve. Bake them for 30 minutes. Remove and brush more apricot preserve while the tart is still warm.
Enjoy and savor it with a dollop of ice-cream. It is truly divine.

By the way I am off on my holidays to Sydney and so taking a short break for three weeks.I am excited and just counting days to get a glimpse of beautiful blues skies, the sand and the surf. I hope to pepper my site with some real Aussie tucker on my return.
Please take care and remember to slip slap & slop whenever going out in the sun.
