Apple tart with a caramel touch

If you don't have too much time to bake but you fancy something sweet this tart is perfect for you!! Veeeery tasty and the most important extremely easy and quick to make. 
The shortcrust pastry and the sweet apple with a caramelized touch makes a perfect couple :) You will really enjoy it!!!!


For the pastry:
  • 150g of cold butter
  • 250g flour
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 small teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 package of vanilla sugar
For the filling: 
  • 1 large apple
  • 50g butter
  • 3 spoons of light brown sugar

Preheat your oven to 180ÂșC. Prepare a pie dish around 28cm in diameter. 
You can make your pastry by hand, or simply pulse all the ingredients in a food processor. If making by hand, sieve the flour with the baking powder, sugars into a large mixing bowl. Add chopped butter and mix with your hands until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg and gently work it together until you have a ball of pastry dough.
Flour a clean surface and roll dough into a circle and put your pastry into the dish and push it into the sides. Take a fork and make some small holes in the pastry, then put the dish into the oven and prebake for about 15min. Take it out and cool down. 

Peel the apple and cut in thin slices, put on the pastry. Put the butter into a pan and on a low heat wait until it melts, add sugar and keep steering until you get a smooth toffee. Pour it onto the sliced apple and bake for another 20-25 minutes. Cool down and enjoy :)
