We had some not so tasty bitter apples, and of course we had to think of something to make them edible.
With limited ingredients, we put together this tart Alhamdulillah.
I have come to love butterscoth sauce. It’s much easier to make than caramel sauce.
Sorry, super unglam picture. But it tastes amazing. T was like it’s the best thing we’ve ever made.
Here’s how to make it…
- 6 tbsp butter, softened
- 3 tsp (or more if u like) brown sugar
- 12 tbsp all purpose flour
- 250g cream cheese, softened
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cinammon
- 4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
- orange juice/lemon juice to coat apple slices
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinammon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 60g unsalted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup cream
- 1 tsp salt
- For the crust, cream butter and sugar, then mix in flour. Press onto base and up the sides by an inch of a 9inch springform pan.
- For the cheese filling, beat cream cheese till fluffy, then beat everything else in till smooth. Pour onto crust.
- Toss sliced apples in the rest of the appl ingredients, then arrange on top of cheese filling.
- Bake at 175 degrees C for 30min, till apples are tender.
- While tart is baking, make the butterscotch sauce…
- Over medium heat, melt butter in a heavybottom saucepan.
- When almost melted, add in the sugar and mix till it becomes smooth. This should take about 5min to become almost like ganache consistency.
- Add in cream, whisk till smooth, turn down the heat slightly. Let it boil and cook, while stirring every now and then, for 10min.
- Cool to room temperature, then add in salt. You can add in vanilla here too, but I didnt have any at the time, and it tasted great.
- Drizze sauce over tart and serve. I like it warm.
