Lazy Apple Tart

An appropriate title since I have been so lazy to post recipes lately even with a kitchen that’s constantly in use.   This recipe is the easiest Apple Tart ever.  Cutting and coring apples will take a little of your time and I’ve been tempted to just bake whole apples on top of a pie crust, it’s a silly idea but not when bit by the “least amount of work”  baking bug!
The apples I used were a mix from the Graves Mountain Apple Harvest, they were different sizes and types of apples so you’re going to have to eyeball how many sliced apples you need to fit a flat 9 inch pie crust. This can be a beautiful apple tart if the slices are even and layered abundantly.  This is my first try and  I found out that baked apples will shrink, you’ll see in the picture below so don’t be too conservative and stuff’ em tarts! ha!
9 inch pie crust (thaw if frozen)
4-5 Apples (cored and sliced, peeling is optional)
1/4 cup Honey/sugar  (add more if you want it ultra sweet)
Butter (about 1 tbsp, add more if you want it buttery)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Grease baking pan/sheet large enough to fit a 9 inch pie crust
3. Cut an apple in half right through the stem and core or cut the seeds and stems off
4. Lay the half pieces down and cut/slice thinly across

5. Place pie crust on greased cookie sheet and overlap apple slices on top of the pie crust, drizzle with Honey or sprinkle with sugar.
6. Fold remaining sides of crust over the apples and put small pieces of cut butter (or brush melted butter) over the apples and crust.
7. Bake for 45 to 50 mins or until crust is golden brown
