Two-Minute Rustic Apple Tart Recipe

Last night my 7yo and I were reading a math picture book together, and the book asked which tasted better… 1/2 of a pizza or 1/2 of an apple pie.

My son called out, “Pizza!” at the very same moment I declared, “Pie!”

Don’t get me wrong. Pizza is awesome.

But oh my goodness, there’s nothing like an apple dessert.

And honestly, if there’s any kind of pie or tart in my fridge, it’s considered breakfast in my house!

And this rustic apple tart recipe is so ridiculously easy to make, it’s going to be an easy go-to for your family.

There’s an Apple for That

Before we even get into baking, let’s just take a minute and talk apples… because they’re not all created equal.

If you’ve ever stood in the produce aisle and wondered what apple to select among the many varieties available, you’re not alone.

Apple varieties can differ greatly when it comes to taste, texture, cooking and storage properties, making it important to make the right choice to get the best results for your recipe or pairing.

Using the right apple can make or break your recipe.

For example, some of the best baking apples are Granny Smith and Pink Lady because these apples hold up particularly well under high heat, retaining a firmer texture.

Using a good baking apple is what brings that delicious, subtle crunch to pie and other pastry delights, versus a mushy filling.

The special Pinata apple by Stemilt Growers is particularly well suited for baking, as it holds up to heat and boasts classic apple flavor with a tropical twist.

For everyday fruit platters, snacks and appetizers featuring fresh, sliced or chopped apples, Honeycrisp is a fantastic option because of its incredible fracturing crunch and a refreshing sweetness similar to fresh apple cider. (And, Honeycrisp is our personal favorite to snack on.)

For whipping up a classic chicken salad, try Fuji or Golden Delicious apples, which are among the sweetest around – the extra sweetness contrasts with the savory ingredients for a more complex flavor.

These apples are also ideal for applesauce due to their soft textures.
