Two Lonely Apples and a Piecrust!

I'll be away from my blog for a few weeks so I've been trying to make use of all that is in my refrigerator.  My hubby was looking for some sweets (I guess you can tell by now the guy loves his desserts) so I took the opportunity to make a quick apple tart using the one Pillsbury pie crust and two apples  that had been starring at me in my refrigerator for a week. It took about 45 minutes from start to finish.. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Prep time: 10 minutes(peeling and dicing).  Happy Baking!!!  See you soon...

2  medium Braeburn or any good baking apple (sliced and diced)
2 tablespoons Minute Tapioca
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust (there are two in the package)
 Sprinkle of cinnamon for top

Sweet, slightly tart and flaky...Can't ask for more!

Two Lonely apples and a pie crust

Carefully place apples mixture on crust. . Dab with butter.  Carefully leave at least 1/2 to 1 inch from end...You will need room to seal.

Fold over  pinch and seal.. Prick with fork in a few areas to vent

Baked and cooled .  Ready to serve, plain or with ice cream!

Set oven to 400 degrees… In a medium bowl place diced apples, tapioca, cinnamon and sugar.  Toss to coat...Place pie crust on cutting board or wax paper.  Roll out slightly with roller (make it a bit larger than original size..  About half way on crust place apple mixture, leaving at least ½ inch to 1 inch from end..  Dab with butter.. Bake approx. 20 to 25 minutes..or until slightly browned.  Note:  Why not pay tribute to those who lost their lives on Sept. 11th by baking an apple pie or tart in honor of  them and our great country, America . Happy Baking!
