    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 6-1/2 teaspoons cold water
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FILLING:
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping, warmed

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water and vanilla, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate until easy to handle, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 10-in. circle. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Combine the filling ingredients; spoon over crust to within 2 in. of edges. Fold up edges of crust over filling, leaving center uncovered. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over filling. Whisk egg and water; brush over crust.
  • Bake until crust is golden and filling is bubbly, 25-30 minutes. Using parchment, slide tart onto a wire rack. Drizzle with caramel topping. Serve warm.
