Apple Tart with Lattice Crust {Bake!}

A small group of us have been working our way through Nick Malgieri’s Bake! at the slow steady pace of a few recipes per month. We took August off to catch up on any recipes we might have missed, or to get ahead on the next section. We started up again in September with Truffle Brownies, a great way to start, if you ask me.

This was the second recipe for September, chosen for us by Kayte. Yes, I said September. I actually made this recipe on time, I just didn’t get around to posting it until now. A month to catch up, and I’m already behind.

This was a fairly straightforward recipe. It’s basically an apple pie baked in a tart shell with a lattice crust.

The lattice topping is brushed with egg wash and sprinkled with sugar.

I had some filling leftover, so I baked it in a gratin dish with the extra crust from the lattice.

 This was a good pie, nothing extraordinary. Probably not one I’ll make again. But then, I have a lot of great apple pie, tart, and cake recipes to choose from.

    We really liked this one and I will probably make it again as Mark ate almost the entire 6″ pie in one sitting…I had one small slice, so that is an indication that it was well-received, I would say. Yours looks lovely, really pretty with your lattice work.

      Thanks. I agree with you: the non-woven lattice kind of felt like cheating. But it looked OK.

    The lattice looks beautiful! We really enjoyed this one, not as the best apple pie ever, but just as a super quick, easy, yummy apple dessert.
