Apple Walnut Tart

Last week I gave you a never fail pie crust recipe. This week I’m using it! Walnuts are a really healthy food. Giving you a big dose of Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E and cardiovascular helping antioxidants in as little as 7 nuts per serving. A lot of the nutritional value is in their skin, so while you need to take them out of the shell, don’t worry about removing the skin! That’s a job that just isn’t worth the effort. I feel the same way about peeling apples. That’s why in my tart, I don’t. But feel free to if you like.

1 pre-made pie crust, not baked
5 medium apples, sliced
1 cup California Walnuts, out of their shell
2 TBSP unsalted butter (*if using salted butter omit salt below)
1/4 TSP salt*
2 TSP cinnamon
4 TBSP brown sugar

In your pie crust layer apples until they cover the entire pie crust. Cover with walnuts, butter, salt and half the amount of cinnamon and brown sugar.


Add remaining apples, brown sugar and cinnamon and bake in a 350 degree oven until crust is golden brown and apples are soft, about 35-50 minutes depending on how thinly you have sliced the apples. Add a bit of vanilla yogurt on top for a bit of calcium – it’s super tasty. Enjoy!
