Free-Form Apple Tart

Contributed by: Chris WebAdmin. of


  • 15 oz refrigerated pie crusts; ready to bake
  • 4 golden delicious apples
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam


Let pie crusts stand at room temperatureas package label directs; unfold and overlap by 4 inch to form an oval. On floured work surface, roll with rolling pin to join; roll to a 19x22" inch oval.

Drape over rolling pin; transfer to large baking sheet. (Oval will be too long for sheet, but edges will be folded up for baking.)

Preheat oven to 425 F. Peel apples; core, leaving apples whole. Thinly slice crosswise; arrange in overlapping rows on pastry, leaving a 1 inch pastry border.

Fold border over apples, pressing gently. In cup, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples.

Bake 40 minutes or until pastry is well-browned on bottom.

In saucepan, over low heat, melt jam. Spread warm jam over apples.
