Directions

  1. In a food processor, combine the flour, butter, sugar and salt; cover and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. While processing, gradually add water in a steady stream until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. Roll out pastry to a 14-in. x 10-in. rectangle; transfer pastry to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Beginning at one corner of the pastry, arrange overlapping apple slices diagonally to opposite corner. Repeat rows. Sprinkle with sugar; dot with butter.
  3. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and apples are tender. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine preserves and brandy; microwave on high for 30 seconds or until blended. Brush over warm tart. Serve warm or at room temperature. Yield: 12 servings.
