Crumbled tart with apple, pine nuts and raisins

75 minutes to prepare Serves 12

Mela mangio


Apples at their simplest can be their very finest.
Sure, I love an oozy, heavily spiced and lidded apple pie, but I also think there is something matchless about apples, butter and sugar, baked until bubbly.
This classic apple tart is from Ernst Knam, but it is so easy you would never guess so.
Moreover, it is delicious...you will see, you will never get tired of it!

Here are ingredients for a 12-serving recipe (24-cm diameter baking pan):


For the pastry

200 g flour 00
100 g sugar
100 g butter
1 egg
1/2 sachet vanilla baking powder
1 lemon zest

For the stuffing

1  apple
25 g raisins
20 g pine nuts
25 g sugar
30 ml Cointreau liquor
1 lemon juice
cinnamon powder

  1. Start preparing the pastry: cut the butter into cubes and place it in a bowl. Add flour and vanilla baking powder, both sifted. Add sugar, too, and knead it quickly
  2. Stir in the egg, then add a pinch of salt
  3. Form a ball, wrap it with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour
  4. Peel the apple and cut it into 1-cm cubes. Place them in a bowl and add the lemon juice, Stir to mix and keep aside
  5. Toast pine nuts in a hot pan and keep them aside
  6. When we are close to the the 1-hour resting time of the pastry, preheat oven to 190°C
  7. Place raisins in a bowl and pour over boiling water. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, then drain
  8. Grease and flour the baking pan, then cover bottom and sides with the pastry cut into a flattened disc-shape, about 5 mm thick
  9. Take the bowl with the cubes of apple and add Cointreau liquor, sugar, cinnamon, pine nuts and raisins. Stir to mix
  10. Pour the mix in the tray and level it
  11. Take the remaining pastry and break it into crumbles. Distribute them over the whole tart surface, being careful to seal the edges, too
  12. Bake at 190°C for about 45 minutes
  13. Once cooked, pull out the tart from the oven and let it cool. When cold, garnish with some powdered sugar and enjoy!!!
