This post may seem a tad late, BUT Christmas is not over yet (at least the holiday season isn't!). So, these are the perfect nifty little snack for a buffet table or light pudding - you could even add a dab of natural yogurt if you feel like it.
Ingredients (makes 12 tarts):
2 cooking apples (should weigh roughly 1lb)
75g demerara sugar
100g wholemeal flour
Pinch of salt
1.) Peel and chop the cooking apples.
2.) Put the apples in a pan. Add the sugar and the water. Put on to stew for 25 minutes.
(This is not the prettiest of pictures, but trust me when I say it tastes nice!)
3.) Cut the butter up into chunks. Rub into the flour with your fingers in a bowl until it reaches a breadcrumb consistency.
4.) Add a little bit of water, and with the blade of a knife mix it in. Continue to do so until you have created a dough. Tip: add in small chunks so it doesn't get too wet too quickly!
5.) Leave dough to chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
6.) Roll out the dough - use a cookie cutter to make 12 circles. Press into a cupcake tin.
7.) Put a teaspoon full of apple in each tartlet.
8.) Cut out a small shape from pastry to place on top of each one - I chose holly leaves, but anything works!
9.) Place one on top of each tartlet.
10.) Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
Hope you all had wonderful Christmasses!
Love and Light,
