Here is a recipe for making a classic apple tart:
1 pie crust dough
3 large apples, cored and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
Roll out the pie crust dough and place it in a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Trim the edges of the dough, then prick the bottom of the crust all over with a fork.
In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with the lemon juice. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the apples and toss to coat evenly.
Arrange the apple slices in a circular pattern on top of the crust, overlapping them slightly. Dot the butter pieces over the top of the apples.
Bake the tart for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender. Let the tart cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature, with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.
