SECRET INGREDIENT: granola with raisins
With a rich butter crust and plenty of juicy apples, this tart is about as classic and comforting a dessert as you can get. What’s different in this version is that the apples are crowned with an extra-crunchy almond topping made with store-bought granola cereal.
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter or margarine
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar, divided
- 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- 6 baking apples, peeled, seeded, and chopped
- 1 1/2 cups granola cereal with raisins
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
How to make it
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, cut the butter into the flour and 1/4 cup of the sugar until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Combine the egg yolk and water in a cup. Stir into the flour mixture and mix lightly.Form the dough into a ball, press onto the bottom and sides of an ungreased 10 x 15-inch baking pan. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
Sprinkle the apples over the crust. Combine the granola, almonds, and remaining sugar in a medium bowl. Sprinkle over the apples.
Bake until the apples are tender, about 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Combine the confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice in a cup until smooth, then drizzle over the top. Cut into 16 slices and serve.
