Glazed Apple Tart

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

    In a large bowl, cut the butter into the flour and 1/4 cup of the sugar until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
