Ingredients

For the tart

  • 2/3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Cup cold butter, cubed
  • 6 1/2 Teaspoons cold water
  • 1/8 Teaspoon vanilla extract

For the filling

  • 1 1/2 Cup tart apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar

For the topping

  • 1 Teaspoon sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons caramel ice cream topping, warmed
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

For the tart

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add the water and vanilla, toss it with a fork until the dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle. 

For the filling

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 10-inch circle. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Combine the filling ingredients; spoon over pastry to within 2 inches of edges.

Fold up the edges of pastry over filling, leaving center uncovered. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over filling. 

For the topping

Bake 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden and filing is bubbly. Using parchment paper, slide tart onto a wire rack. Drizzle with caramel topping. Serve wam.
