How to Make Apple Tarte Tatin

In this video, you’ll see how to make a quick-and-easy rustic apple tarte. It’s basically just caramelized apples baked in a simple crust—and much lighter than an apple pie. You’ll discover Chef John’s favorite apples for this dessert and see how to peel, core, and slice them perfectly. His technique is incredibly quick and easy. You’ll simply lay apples into a well-buttered (and sugared) skillet. Give the sugary apples some sautéeing on the stovetop, then lay pie crust on top of the apples before popping the skillet into the oven. Incredibly easy! Watch the video, then get Chef John’s recipe for Apple Tarte Tatin. Serve with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream.

This is the best and easiest recipe ever! I had discovered Tarte Tatin 27 years ago and have dreamed of someday making it. Always in fear of pie crust or some other unknown. I have followed this recipe 10 times now and each time amazing and perfect. Exremely simple....Apples, butter, sugar and flour..... No mystery...Thanks for this Chef John

I've tried this twice now and not managed to get it right. Can anyone help me? My sauce turns into hard caramel...what am I doing wrong?


I have done this recipe with and without the lemon juice. There was no difference. I cut my apples and placed them directly into the pan once, but it didnt alter the look or taste.
