Apple Crisp Tart Recipe

The crumb topping gives this apple tart a delightfully sweet crunch in every bite. I like to make it year-round, but it's especially good in fall when fresh apples are at their best. --Janet Briggs

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Combine egg and milk; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
