shortcrust pastry
Apple, Walnut and Raisin Tart
1 package SHORTCRUST Pastry
1 ½ kilo Starkin (red) apples
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg powder
½ cup raisins
½ cup grated walnuts
½ cup Petit Beurre-type biscuits (crushed)
2-3 tbsp. brandy
zest of 1 orange
5 tbsp. corn flour
juice of ½ lemon
melted butter for the pan
Marinate the raisins in the brandy while you finish making the filling. Peel the apples, cut them into quarters, and cut each quarter into thin slices. Mix them with the lemon juice to prevent them from browning. In a bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, orange zest, nutmeg powder, corn flour, crushed biscuits, walnuts, and raisins, after draining them. Combine the mixture and apples, stir, and place on top of the baked base. Bake at 190°C for 35 to 40 minutes on the lowest shelf of the oven.
For making Sweet Tart Crust:
1. Butter the bottom and sides of the tart pan and line with one sheet of Shortcrust pastry. Brush the sheet with some butter and sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoons of sugar.
2. With a knife, cut the overhanging edges of the pastry and use your fingers to press the dough against the pan's sides.
