Rustic Apple Tarts

I totally wasn't planning on posting tonight...the kids are at grandma's and we're heading north tomorrow...but Cody and I just shared the yummiest treat ever:

A Rustic Apple Tart.

You've got to whip up one of these and share it after your kiddos go to bed! Extra delicious when the husband stops and grabs some ice cream on the way home!

Here it is...I'm "borrowing" these beautiful pictures, by the way. I had no idea it would be this good, so I didn't have my camera ready!

I had some extra pie crust leftover from the pie we took to Cloe's teacher today. (Yes, I am the biggest kiss up ever! I really want Cloe's teacher to know we appreciate her!) So I decided to try something I'd seen popping up in magazines...rustic apple tart! So Martha Stewart-ish...

Rustic Apple Tart

Grandma's Pie Crust

1 stick of cold butter
1 heaping cup of flour
1/3 c. cold milk

Use a pastry blender to mix butter and flour. Add milk and use your hand to form into a ball of dough.
On a very floured surface, roll out into a large circle.

Slice three or four apples and toss with sugar and cinnamon. (just guess on the amounts...)

Place dough on a cookie sheet. Pour apples into center of dough and wrap the dough up around the edges of the apples. Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Yum!!! Even better served al-a-mode! I may never make a real apple pie again...

OK, now I'm leaving for a couple of days! We're heading north to do some fun exploring in the Twin Cities and to enjoy a little David Crowder!!!!
Have a great rest of your week!
