I go with framily (yes, framily), a BW (bottle of water and body of water),  unhealthy cookout nosh masked as bathing suit friendly health food, sun and fun…in no particular order, in that exact order. Think on it.

This five Apple Tart is the perfert farmer’s market apple tart that could be made with whatever apples you can find.

Soaking the apples in lemonade brings out the sweeter side of the fruit and adds the perfect pucker.

Plus, this is 100% All American. If such a thing exists these days…

Five Apple Rustic Spring Tart

Ingredients:
5 apples ( I used Granny Smith, Mutsu, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, and Jonagold)

Agave Nectar (for garnish)

Directions:

2. Put all apple slices together in a bowl and cover with lemonade, set aside.
3. In a medium-sized bowl, crumble butter into flour until you have pea sized pieces of butter throughout the mixture.
4. Add sugar and egg (be careful not to over mix) until soft dough forms.
5. Set aside in fridge for half hour.
6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
7. Flour parchment paper, and roll out dough to shape of your choice and crimp edges.
8. Layer apples on top of crust.
9. Brush edges of crust with butter and sprinkle with sugar.
10. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes (or until edges are golden brown)
