Apple tart

I had a few rapidly fading apples lying about, and some pre-fab pie crusts in the fridge, so I put together a nice free-form apple tart.

4 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/4 c sugar
1/4 golden raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp mace
1/2 tsp ginger
pinch salt

half-and-half
crystalline brown sugar (turbinado)

Place the pre-fab pie crust onto a sheet of parchment on a baking sheet.

Mix the ingredients, and pile into the middle of the pie crust.  Pull up the edges to form a border, overlapping as you go around the perimeter.  You can see the result in the photo.

Brush the edges with half-and-half, then sprinkle with the turbinado sugar.

 Ready to bake.

Bake at 375°F (convection) for about 45 mins, or until brown and bubbly.

Cool 10 minutes, then remove from the parchment to a serving platter.

Ten minutes of effort for a wonderful dessert!
