How's them apples
A friend bought the most delicious apple crumble tart thingy's to bookclub... we have an overabundance of apples due to our market runs... so I had to make them... I put it down to cravings :) LOL and too many apples :)
She put hers in premade tartlet shells - I recommend, hers tasted better, but my shop didnt have any :(
So I cut out some circles from shortcrust pastry and placed them in my muffin tin.
In a bowl grate apples (about 4), a little lemon juice, caster sugar to taste (maybe 1/4 cup) and cinnamon.
Spoon into tart shells
1/2 cup cold butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour (I used wholemeal)
Mix to breadcrumb consistency
sprinkle over tarts
Bake 20 mins
I had left over topping (and that is a halved recipe..) so I made more the next day!! They are good hot, cold, with cream, with custard... anytime really :)
