Apple Tart

No, I swear I didn't just call you a tart. I just want you to make this tart! It's delicious and different. It has layers and layers of yummy sauteed apples and a unique crust. Try this, you won't be sad, I promise. 

6 Apples sliced thin - I used Granny Smith, I like a firmer texture and wanted some tartness but you can definitely substitute your favourite apple. Golden delicious maybe?
2 tbs unsalted butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
dash of cinnamon

8 cups of crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 milk
4tbs butter

Powdered sugar for the top (optional)

Core your apples, then thinly slice them.

Add 2 tbs of butter to a large heavy pan.

Combine the sugars together to sprinkle on the apples in the sauce pan.

Like so! Cook these on a med-low heat for about 10 mins covered and then another 8-10 mins uncovered to allow all of the apple juices to evaporate.

Combine the butter and the milk in a small sauce pan, and heat just until the butter is melted. 

Combine the graham cracker crumbs and sugar together. 

Pour the warm milk/butter mixture into the graham crackers.

Mix the "dough" together, it will be kind of sticky let it sit for 15 mins to absorb the liquids. 

Mmmm can't you just smell the delicious apples? Almost caramelized! 

Press half of your dough into the bottom of a fluted tart pan. Take the rest of the dough and lay it on some saran wrap then press the dough flat and shape into a circle to fit on the top of the tart. Refrigerate top and bottom for 1 hour. 

Preheat your oven to 350, add the cooled and caramelized apples to the bottom of your tart. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!! The smell alone sent the entire house into a frenzy. 

Add the top crust and bake in an oven for about 45 mins. Until the crust is golden and starts to pull away from the sides of the tart pan. 

Mmm it smelled so good. 

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I topped mine with a raspberry coulis. 

It was crazy good...so good my husband tried to play the it's not good so you probably shouldn't eat another piece deal on me. It would be AMAZING with some homemade vanilla ice cream! Serve this warm with ice cream. It's so good.
