Cinnamon Apple Tart

I got the idea for this delicious fall dessert from a lovely Italian woman who’s also a fabulous cook. It’s so simple to make—and cleanup is just as easy! I often make two and freeze one. —Stacie Blemings, Heath, Texas

    Very rarely do I use store bought pie pastry. I happened to have one since it had been on sale. Next time I will use my own home made pastry and then this recipe will definitely be a 5. Since I didn't have apple jelly, I just opened up a can of apple pie filling and used that. I love cinnamon chips and am looking for additional recipes to use them in. The chips really kick the flavor up a bit.

    I made this today and it was our dessert tonight. I served it with whipped cream. I followed the directions with no changes but did leave the icing off and used whipped cream instead. It was delicious and was quick and easy to prepare. I do recommend this recipe. Volunteer Field Editor

    The texture was okay, did not like the cinnamon bits, but overall, it was not too bad...
