Carla Makes an Apple Tart | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 16 November 2018
  • Join Carla in the Test Kitchen as she makes an apple tart! This unadorned tart bakes at a fairly high temperature and boasts a deeply browned crisp crust. The apples at the bottom of the tart are insulated from direct heat, so they steam and soften into a very tender layer. The ones up top hold their shape, which means you’ll get a mix of textures in each bite.

    My grandmother always said (in regards to making pie crust) "use butter like water, and water like gold". And it turns out every time. :)

                    While Carla’s rustic crust looks AMAZING, I use this recipe for the filling of the cinnamon roll apple pie that I got from Tasty. It’s the best of both worlds. If the two channels were to ever collaborate, that would need to be it.

                          Does anyone know if this would work with vegan butter? And with different kinds of flour (like rye)? Thanks <3

                                  I've got the CC on since I am drying my hair with a low blower and it read, "Hey guys it's Kyle." Seriously?!?

                                    If you wanna do this and ... well, do the folding... you want some nice tightly woven canvass for the kitchen. You'll have to hand wash and special dry the stuff but you can get really really good quick folds out of it. The canvass will capture some of the butter - you can very gently pre-load it with a little. The small fibers that will come off won't be a digestive problem.

                                    I also use a drill guide and a 5/8" auger bit to core apples....

                                    Very important not to "pack" the stuffing of a piled tart into the crust, you'll need air gaps for the cooking to happen/breathe the heat into the fruit. You can enhance this by using a crinkle cutter for slicing the apples on your practice tart.

But is this technically more of a pie dough rather than a semi sweet shortcrust that tends to get used for classic tarts? I'm just curious because I much prefer tart dough and wanted to sub a very lightly blind baked tart dough for this dough.

But upon rolling it out it ended up just looking like Pangea. I feel like I must have ended up incorporating too much flour from dusting the rolling pin/surface, and then it getting folded in. Super bummed, but ended up using frozen short crust. The filling was delicious, and had no idea that the brown butter would sort of taste like caramel for, like, 0.01 of a second. I'm determined to get the dough right for next time.

                                                                                Thanks Carla :)
