30 Min


2 c
self rising flour
1/2 c
butter, softened
1 large
egg, lightly beaten
2/3 c
3 oz
baking apples, peeled and sliced ( i use granny smith )
5 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/2 tsp
sugar for top
beaten egg , for egg wash


1Pre-heat the oven to 350 degree F.

Grease a 9 inch tart pan.
2Mix butter and flour with fingers until crumbly.
3Stir in sugar, milk and egg. Dough should be soft but not sticky. Try not to over mix. Add a little more flour if too sticky.
4Turn dough out onto a floured board. Cut the dough into two portions.
5Place half of the dough into the prepared tart pan, pressing it in with floured fingers to evenly cover the bottom of the dish.
6Spread the apple slices evenly over the base, leaving a bit of an edge all the way around. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon, evenly.
7Carefully roll out the remaining half of the dough into a circle roughly the same size as the dish. Place on top of the apples, pressing the edges together with the bottom crust. ( the crust is very pliable, if need be, place on top of apples and spread with fingers to cover apples, and pinch together with bottom crust).

Cut several slits in the top of the cake to ventilate.
8Brush the top with egg, and sprinkle with 1 - 2 tablespoons of sugar. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until golden brown, and apples are tender. I use a narrow knife to check apples..if easily goes through them it's done. Mine took 30 minutes.

Serve with Ice cream or alone. Delicious!
