Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, core& quarter apples; toss with lemon juice& 2 tbsp of the sugar.
  2. Let stand& toss again so that sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. In a 10 inch ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
  4. Sprinkle remaining sugar evenly over butter.
  5. Stir just until sugar is dissolved& remove from heat.
  6. Place as many apple wedges as you can into the pan.
  7. They will actually stand on end but thats OK since they will shrink as the tarte cooks.
  8. Place the pan back over medium heat and cook the apples for 20- 25 minutes or until syrup has formed a thickened caramel.
  9. Cool slightly.
  10. Gently roll out pie shell (or puff pastry) to fit slightly larger than the pan.
  11. Place over the pan, trim edges& bake in preheated 400F oven for 20- 25 minutes or until pastry is crisp.
  12. Turn out onto a large platter& serve.
