DIRECTIONS

  • Place the flour and salt in the food processor.
  • Add the pieces of butter (or shortening) and briefly pulse for 5 to 10 seconds or until the mixture looks like coarse meal.
  • Add the ice water spoonful by spoonful, pulsing briefly a second or two after each addition until the dough just holds together.
  • Empty the dough out onto a lightly floured hard surface and shape the dough into a flat disk.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.
  • Roll out the dough into a circle with a thickness of about 1/8 of an inch.
  • Center the dough in a 9 inch tart or pie pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Peel the apples, remove the cores, and slice thinly.
  • Mix the apple slices together with the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • Pour the apples into the prepared pie crust.
  • Dot the apples with butter.
  • Trim the edges of the pie with a sharp knife.
  • In a food processor, mix the flour, brown sugar and butter together until crumbly.
  • Stir in the walnuts and spoon the topping over the apples in the prepared pie crust.
  • Bake the tart for about 45 to 50 minutes, or until the crust is light brown and the apple filling is bubbly.
  • Cool for at least 15 minutes and serve.
