Here in the U.S., Kurt Sutter’s The Bastard Executioner, a period drama on FX, is a few episodes into it’s 14th century epic. An apple tart, so simple to create, and with connections to medieval cookery seemed apropos.
Pie Crust for 9 inch pie
3 large tart cooking Apples (I used Granny Smiths)
8 oz soft white Goat Cheese
4 tablespoons Honey
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Lay out two pie crusts. Spread half of the goat cheese on each piece of pie dough, leaving a couple of inches at the edge uncovered. Peel, core and slice your apples. Lay the apple slices in a decorative pattern on top of the goat cheese, half on each tart. Drizzle 2 table spoons of honey on each tart. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Now, fold the uncovered edge up and over the tart, as pictured above. Beat your egg and brush over the piece dough.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Serve warm or cold.
