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.
