  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1 1/4 cups sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Mix in eggs and vanilla extract until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour but not more than 1 day.
  2. While the dough is chilling, prepare the apple filling.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss diced apples with sugar and cinnamon. Mix in walnuts.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 16 3-inch tart pans. Remove tart dough from the refrigerator and let it stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before rolling out.
  5. Knead dough briefly on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 16 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 6-inch circle, and carefully fit one circle into each tart pan.
  6. Spoon an equal amount of apple mixture into each tart pan. Fold pastry over filling. Place filled tarts on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Melt apricot jam and brush over finished tarts, if desired.

I thought these were lovely. Did not find the dough hard to work with, but then I often add more or less flour depending on how dry or sticky it is (usually need to add a little more).

What a great tart. Very pretty and easy to make. I used some allspice and nutmeg along with the cinnamon. Thanks for sharing.

I didn't make the pie crust, since I had a crust in the freezer I wanted to use up, so I'm not rating the crust today. I also didn't use a top crust as a result. This is a nice little recipe f...

I liked this recipe but I made a lot of changes. I used pecans, apples, brown sugar and maple syrup. I also used prepared tart shells and just pulled up the edges to make them fold over. They...

I used two teaspoons apple pie spice, one teaspoon arrowroot, left the peel on the apples and I used store bought rolled pie crust. I tossed the ingredients and used a 6 inch cake cutter to cut...

Excellent flavor and easy to make.
