Apple Tart is one of my family’s favorite desserts. It’s also one of the easiest to make thanks to Challenge Unsalted Butter. I make sure to add it to my list on the Randalls mobile app to ensure I always have it on-hand in my fridge. All 5 ingredients can be found at Randalls with ease. This crust is unbelievably flaky and the apples bring the right amount of sweetness to this recipe. It’s the perfect holiday treat!

During the holidays I love recipes similar to this Apple Tart! Meaning, I love making the entire dessert in a baking sheet and it makes plenty of servings. My Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars are some of my favorites and they actually freeze really well. These Christmas Magic Cookie Bars are also a treat that everyone loves!

Making a pastry dough

Raising three boys isn’t always the easiest, but they sure make it fun! I’ve always had them in the kitchen with me since they were little. They’ve helped me mix, measure and stir. Now that they are older, they each get to take part in the baking process and I don’t need to supervise them too much.

This apple tart basically has 3 parts to it. Making the pastry dough, preparing the apples by slicing, sprinkling with sugar and dotting with Challenge Butter. Lastly, baking and adding a simple peach glaze over the top. Nothing tastes better than a recipe where everyone has a hand in making it.

It really is a joy to be in the kitchen with my family. Especially around the holiday season! I love using Challenge Butter for my holiday baking because there is nothing artificial added ever. They’re one of the oldest dairy co-operatives in the country and since 1911, they’ve been churning fresh butter every single day!

Notes

*To prevent apples from browning, once you have sliced them, dip them in a bowl of ice water.  Be sure to pat them dry before arranging them on the pastry dough.
