There's nothing like the sweet crunchy taste of Honeycrisp apples to bring on fall. And this Rustic Apple Crumble Tart is the perfect dessert if you want something quick and easy that showcases these sweet crisp fall favorites.
I've been a big fan of puff pastry desserts lately. The crust is thin and flaky and you get the full flavor of whatever fruit you're putting on top. Be sure to check out my tart dessert recipes if you're a fan of summer berries, peaches or pears.
My Rustic Apple Crumble Tart is simply an apple crostata, apple galette and apple crisp all rolled into one. The crust is flaky and buttery and the brown sugar and oatmeal crumble topping is crunchy and sweet.
This tart takes less than a half an hour to make and is delicious served warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Perfect for Thanksgiving dinner or any get together.
Rustic Apple Crumble Tart
- 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 2 Honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400° F.
Unfold one puff pastry sheet and cut off the corners to create a circle that fits nicely into into the bottom and up the sides of a tart pan. Use the puff pastry corners to fill in any areas that need little extra crust.
Peel, core and slice the apples thinly and place them in a bowl. Drizzle lemon juice over top to keep the apples from browning.
In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and melted butter to create a crumbly topping.
Arrange the apple slices on in the tart pan in an alternating pattern. Top the tart with the crumble and bake for 15-20 minutes on a low oven rack until the pastry sheet is golden brown.
Cool and serve as is or with a scoop A vanilla ice cream.
Serves 4. Total time: 30 minutes.
