Sweet Apple Days!
Five sheets of phillo dough, defrosted.
1/3 C of melted butter
2T of sugar
1 T of warmed up marmalade or peach jam (optional)
Prepare the tart:
Layer one phillo sheet at a time, brush with melted butter, until all five sheets are used.
Fold the edges in.
Sprinkle 1 T of sugar at the bottom of the tart.
Layer your cut apples ( keep your sliced apples in a water bath with lemon juice to prevent discoloring).
Sprinkle the rest of the sugar on the apples.
Drizzle the rest of the butter.
Drizzle the warmed up marmalade over the entire tart.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375F for 30-35 minutes. Slice and eat!
Light and Airy and Delightful Dessert.
Note: you can delete the marmalade, you can lower the amount of sugar, you can add chopped nuts. Do use tart apples, though, as these keep their shape as they bake. Phillo intimidates some people. It becomes easier and easier with practice.
