Apple Filling

  • 2 pounds apples (I used Macintosh) - about 6 apples
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce - plus extra for drizzling


  • 1/2 cup quick or old fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablesspoons unsalted butter


To make the filling.

  1. Peel, core and slice the apples about 3/4 inch thick. In a large bowl, toss the apples with the lemon juice.  

  2. Combine the brown sugar, the granulated sugar, flour and the cinnamon. Add to the apples and gently toss to coat. Set aside.

To make the streusel.

  1. In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon. Add the butter and pulse just until the mixture just starts to clump together. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

To make the tart.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

  2. Remove the prepared pastry tart out of the refrigerator. Spoon in the apples. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the apples. Sprinkle the streusel on top. Drizzle a little more caramel on top of the streusel, if desired.

  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and the apples are fork tender. Cool for 10 minutes, then carefully remove the tart pan. Finish cooling on a wire rack. Serve as is or with vanilla ice cream.
