Pâte Brisée (Cut this amount in half for a single crust)

Instructions
  1. Make the Pâte Brisée. Roll out the dough 1/8 – 1/16” thick, in a shape that fits a cookie sheet.
  2. Slice apples 1/4” thick. Chop odd ends coarsely.
  3. Fill dough, and place slices on top about 1 1/2” from outside edge of dough.
  4. Bring up border of dough and fold over apples.
  5. Sprinkle apples with sugar and pieces of butter.
  6. Bake 400° 65- 75 minutes, until well-browned and crusty.
  7. Slide onto a board.
  8. Dilute apricot preserves with alcohol or 1T water. Spread on apples.
  9. Serve lukewarm, cut into wedges.
Pâte Brisée
  1. Mix flour, butter and salt together very lightly, so butter remains visible.
  2. Add water and mix very fast with hand, just so dough coheres.
  3. (Cut dough in half if you made full recipe)
  4. Refrigerate 1-2 hours, or use right away (if you use it right away the butter will be soft and may need extra flour in the rolling process).
