"The beauty of a recipe that uses just pastry dough, butter, apples, and sugar to make the magic, is that no matter how yours comes out you'll enjoy it."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Coat a 10-inch oven-proof skillet with butter. Sprinkle sugar evenly over the top of the butter.
  3. Place apple quarters, rounded sides down, on top of the butter and sugar in a circular pattern.
  4. Place skillet over medium-high heat and cook until butter melts and sugar dissolves and begins to caramelize. Continue to cook until apples soften and caramel begins to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Sprinkle work surface with flour and roll pie dough into an 11-inch circle. Pinch edge to create a ruffle around crust.
  6. Place crust on top of apples and tuck in edges around apples.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Place a plate over the top of the pan and carefully invert to release tarte from the pan. Scrape any remaining apples stuck to the pan back on top of crust.

This is a marvelous recipe. It was so very delicious that I have made 3 in 2 weeks. Being adventurous, it sounded kind of like a pecan sticky bun which I adore, so I included whole pecans just ...

I used medium sliced apples and packed them closer together. Also used shredded almonds and 1 tsp cinnamon. Being very naughty I used store bought puff pastry. It was fantastic!

Very tasty. Didn't have a skillet I can put in the over, so I cooked on the fire in a non stick frying pan and the transferred to a pe dish. my dish is 8inch and hence I used only 2 apples, 1/3 ...

First time came out great. Second time I cooked too long on the stove top and it carmelized too much (almost burnt) and turned too hard. Then it wouldn't come out of the pan. Thank goodness t...

I loved the simplicity of the recipe and it tasted amazing. Take the 5 mins and watch the video...it really does help understand the instructions. I made minor changes. I reduced the sugar to 1...

GOOD EASY It is easy and does have just a pudding feel, but left for a day and it is great. I gave a 5 because simple doesn't mean less points for what it is, it is GREAT

I have made this tarte several times and always with good results. I have a pretty solid pie crust, so have not made Chef John's. Two things I would note: Be sure to make sure the applies ar...
