Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

1 2/3 Cup(s) Whole wheat pastry flour
2 Tablespoon(s) Date sugar
4 Tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter, chilled
3 Tablespoon(s) Safflower oil
1 Egg white
1 Tablespoon(s) Apple cider vinegar
3 1/2 Tablespoon(s) ICE Water
3/4 Cup(s) Cranberries
2 Cup(s) Sliced green apples
1/4 Cup(s) Apple juice or apple brandy
1/4 Cup(s) Dried currants or raisins
1 Cup(s) Maple syrup
2 Tablespoon(s) Arrowroot powder
1 Tablespoon(s) Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon(s) Lemon Rind, Grated
1/2 Cup(s) Ground almonds or walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour
and date sugar. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and grate in
butter and stir in oil. With fingers or a pastry mixer, combine butter
and flour mixture until it is the texture of cornmeal. Do not overmix
or butter will melt. Add egg white, vinegar, and enough of the ice
water to form 8 small balls of dough. Wrap each in plastic wrap and
refrigerate for 10 minutes. In a saucepan over medium-high heat,
combine cranberries, apples, apple juice, currants, and maple syrup.
Cook, uncovered, until berries pop. In a small bowl combine arrowroot
with lemon juice and add to cranberries along with cinnamon and lemon
rind. Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens. Remove from
heat and let cool 10 minutes. Lightly flour a counter or breadboard.
Roll each ball of dough into a 6-inch circle and press into a 4-inch
tart pan (preferably one with fluted edges). Fill two thirds full with
cranberry filling and sprinkle with ground almonds. Bake for 20
minutes. Let cool before serving. Makes 8 tarts. Note: Crunchy date
sugar adds a fruity taste to the whole wheat pastry dough, but if it
is not available, substitute an equal amount of maple sugar or honey.
