Rustic Apple Tart

  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts

  • 1/2 cup dulce de leche

Walnut Streusel

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 white sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons of butter, cold


  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Set out pie crusts to get to room temperature.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  4. Peel, core, and thinly slice three apples.
  5. Place in a bowl and add lemon juice to prevent browning.
  6. Transfer the apples to a saucepan with a cup of warmed apple cider.
  7. Heat the apples and cider on medium high and stir occasionally.
  8. When they are very hot add 1/3 cup of dulce de leche sauce. (Leave the extra to drizzle in the crust).
  9. Mix it up until the dulce de leche has dissolved and then remove from the fire.
  10. Using a slotted spoon transfer the apples to the center of the pie crust.
  11. Then drizzle the remaining dulce de leche over the top.
  12. Mix up the Walnut Streusel topping with a fork.
  13. Pour it over the top of the apples.
  14. Fold the edges of the pie crust to the center.
  15. Brush with milk and sprinkle sugar around the top of the edges.
  16. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
  17. Allow to cool and firm up before serving.
