Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Cup(s) All purpose flour
1 Pinch(s) Salt
1/4 Pound(s) Unsalted butter, chilled
cut into
tablespoon- sized
3 Tablespoon(s) Iced cold water, About
Flour for rolling out dough
3 Golden delicious apples
2 Tablespoon(s) Melted unsalted butter
3 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
1/2 Cup(s) Store-bought caramel or
1/2 Cup(s) Water
2 Teaspoon(s) Anise seeds
Ice cream to serve with
tart optional
TO MAKE THE DOUGH: In a food processor, combine the flour with a pinch
of salt. Add the cold butter and pulse the machine 15 to 20 times or
until the butter has been cut into the flour in pieces about the size
of oatmeal flakes. Keeping the machine running, add the water and
process, pulsing the machine on and off, for a few seconds longer or
until the dough comes together. Transfer the dough to the counter. If
it is still dry, sprinkle it with a teaspoon or so of water and work
the water into the dough. Flatten the dough into a disk and chill,
preferably overnight, or for at least 2 hours. TO ROLL OUT THE DOUGH:
Lightly flour the counter and roll out the dough into a circle
approximately 12-inches in diameter and about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer
the dough to a large baking sheet. Roll up the edges of the dough with
your fingers to form a rim. Dip a fork in flour and crimp the rim with
the fork to form a decorative edge. Then prick the entire surface of
the pastry with the tines of the fork and refrigerate the dough while
you prepare the apples. TO PREPARE THE TART: Peel the apples and cut
them in half, vertically along the axis of the core. Scoop out the
cores. Place apple halves on a cutting board flat side down then cut
the apple halves into 1/8-inch thick slices. TO BAKE THE TART:
Preheat the oven to 400ø F. Remove the dough from the refrigerator.
Press overlapping slices of apple in a circle against the outer rim of
the pastry. Then press a second, smaller circle of overlapping slices
inside the larger one and continue this way until the surface of the
pastry is covered with apple slices. Drizzle the melted butter over
the apples and sprinkle the sugar evenly over the butter. Bake for 40
to 45 minutes or until the surface of the apples are golden brown. TO
MAKE THE SAUCE: While the tart is baking, transfer the caramel or
butterscotch sauce into a small saucepan and add the water and anise
seeds and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain out the anise seeds. TO SERVE
THE TART: Cool the tart for 10 minutes, then cut it into 6 large
slices. Transfer each slice to a plate and drizzle on some of the
sauce. Serve with ice cream and additional licorice sauce. Converted
