Before you start

Preheat the oven to 180ºC, fan setting | Large saucepan | Tart tin lined with baking parchment | Food processor | Baking beans or rice | Peeler

Bake the base

  • Roll the puff pastry out onto the tart case, push down to ensure it fits the tart and cut off any excess pastry around the rims.
  • Fill the tart case with baking beans or rice.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
  • Once golden, remove from the oven and leave to one side until needed.
  • Remove the baking beans.

While the pastry bakes, prepare the apples

  • Peel the apples and cut into small pieces.
  • Place the pieces into a large saucepan.
  • Add 100ml of boiling water and cook for a few minutes before adding the sugar.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, or until the apples feel soft.
  • Once the apples feel soft, roughly crush about half of them with a fork (creating some purée and leaving some as chunks).

Make the topping

  • Place all of the topping into a food processor and blend until a crumble mixture comes together, being careful not to over mix.

Assemble and bake pie

  • Spoon the apple filling into the middle of the pre cooked tart case and use a spoon to smooth over the layer.
  • Top with the crumble topping and pat down slightly.
  • Cook for 10-15 minutes until golden brown on top.


Time to serve

Serve the tart with large spoonfuls of warm custard.
