American Apple Tart from my mom (Tarta de manzanas americanas de mi mama)








Picking up the last green apples (granny smith) I have already said that the time has flown from quinces to apples (which I love) I remembered this recipe from my mom, one of those that I always did, American apple pie, It is super good and the dough delicious.
I made it for Mother's Day. As a tribute to my mother and because here we love her recipes always.

 Hope all moms had a nice day. We made this apple pie and lemon pie that was great. It was super entertaining. My daughter made the Lemon Pie.

A hug and I appreciate your love and visits



Note

Those who know me well know usually I  say what I think.
I am sorry that I have not visited  so much my friends I hope to catch up now, I have been a little sad and tired with everything that happens today right here (we are in the pick of the disease) and it depresses me to see that so little progress  and so many people  is  so sick .

I hope to visit you this week.Hugs

Ingredients


Filling


5 large apples  cored, peeled cut  in small cubes (fuji , granny Smith or golden delicious) 
1 apple peeled, cored in slices
1 cup of  granulated sugar
1/2 cup of water

4 lady fingers biscuits
ground cinnamon


Crust


3 cups all purpose flour
Butter 130 grams 
3 yolks
3/4 cup  granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 to 5 tablespoons of warm milk

 One yolk and milk for brush the tart (optative)






Apples from my yard






Method


Filling


For the apple filling, peel and cut apples in slices or chunks and  cook  in a  saucepan, with 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water (like a compote), cook over medium heat always stirring with a wooden spoon until they are  cooked and dry.

 Let cool while preparing the tart crust.




Crust
On the kitchen table put the flour  forming a crown, add the butter with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture  resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the yolks  , the sugar and baking powder.
Add the milk a bit at a time,and mix until the dough  starts to come together, you have to develop a feel how much to use.

Divide dough in two pieces one lightly larger than the  other.
Shape into 2 round  flat discs and refrigerate by 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F (180 ° C) Remove the dough from refrigerator and leave for a few minutes to soften slightly.

On a lightly floured work surface roll the larger pastry disk into a circle for a pie dish  (24cm or 10 inches).

Make crumbs with the lady fingers biscuits and spread over the dough already placed.
Fill with the mixture of cooked apples and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Over this mixture add the  other apple in slices .
Sprinkle other biscuits and cover withe remaining dough.

Press a fork all around the edge to seal or crimp with the rounded edge of a table knife pressed against your index finger. With the fork make some holes in the top of the pie.

Brush the top with a mix of yolk and  some milk and bake about 40 - 45 minutes or until looks golden brown.
Transfer to a cooling rack and let settle for at least 20 minutes before serving.
You can serve with  vanilla Ice cream or whipped cream.

  4. Qua la situazione sembra un po' migliorare ma bisogna continuare a stare attenti. Le torte di mele comunque aiutano a tirare su il morale. Io adoro le apple pie, sopratutto con le granny smith, che sono le mie mele preferite

  5. Gloria, Great looking apple pie. Your mom has passed down a tried and true American classic. Love Granny Smith apples! Checked Chile's coronavirus numbers. With 53,616 cases but only 544 reported Covid-19 deaths, the numbers look pretty decent. Hopefully, things are settling down for you and your family. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. I know what you mean. I don't feel that there's anything that I can do. However, I also feel that I should really think hard about whether or not that's literally true. There must be something that I can do.
