SOUTH AFRICAN APPLE TART Recipe

Ingredients
  • CRUST INGREDIENTS
  • 4 ounces butter/pareve margarine
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • pinch of salt
  • Filling Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jelly
  • 5 golden delicious apples, sliced
  • 1/2 cup raisins, optional
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca, optional
Directions
Cream butter and sugar. Beat egg up well and add oil. Add flour and dry ingredients. This can all be done gradually in a food processor until the dough forms a ball . Let dough stand in fridge (if you have time) which will make it easier to work with. Leave a handful of dough for the topping. Using your fingers, press the rest of the dough into a 9" pyrex pie plate (which you have sprayed with Pam) - going up the sides and crimping with a fork. Using a fork, prick holes all over the base of the pie. Shake a little flour over the dough (these steps prevent sogginess) and then spoon on about 2 tsp of apricot jelly. In a separate bowl mix up the filling. Pre-cook/ soften some golden delicious apples that have been sliced (about 5) and mix them with about 1/2 C. raisins (optional), some brown sugar (about 1/4 C.) and cinnamon (about 2 T.). You can add 1 tsp. tapioca to thicken the juices (optional). If you like , add 1/4 tsp. ground cloves. Using the left over dough which should be cold or even frozen, grate this over the apples to form a crumb-like topping. Sprinkle a little more brown sugar on top. Bake at 350 for about 30 mins until golden in color.

You can also freeze the uncooked tart and then bake - will take a little longer.
