We made these easy apple tartlets with a simple apple filling and tasty squares dough, using a silicon tartelette container. It was a bit of an experiment, but they came out beautifully, exactly like the apple tartlets we grew up with as children.
Makes six tartlets of about 850 mm in diameter
- 1 quantity of tasty square dough
- 4 to 6 apples
- or a 410 tin of apple slices
- 1 cinnamon quill
- Sugar to taste
- Peel the apples, remove their cores and then slice and chop them.
- Simmer the apple and cinnamon quill in a little water until the apple is soft. Use just enough water to keep the apple moist.
- Remove the cinnamon quill and sweeten to your own taste. (We prefer it to be neither too sweet or too tangy.)
- Make the dough according to the Tasty Squares recipe.
- Divide the dough into three equal parts.
- Refrigerate one third of the dough and divide the remaining two thirds into six portions and use it to make a crust in each of the silicon tartelette containers. Make sure that the crust covers the walls of each container.
- Add any leftover dough to the remaining dough in the refrigerator.
- Fill the crusts with the cooked apple.
- Use a normal grater to grate the refrigerated dough over the apple fillings.
- Bake for about 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 180°C until pale brown.
Serve, preferably warm out of the oven, with whipped cream.
