This apple tarts recipe combines a spiced apple filling with a buttery pie crust. These cute tarts are a compact version of apple pie, and therefore are more transportable for an easy morning breakfast or dessert at lunch. Pie baking is very easy, but making pie crust poses some challenges. In the case of this pastry recipe, butter is cut into the flour mixture until crumbly. It is integral to have the butter and fluid as cold as possible since cold butter produces a flakier crust. Always use a pastry cutter or knife to cut the butter into the flour, and use your hands as little as possible, since body heat will cause the butter to soften quickly.

When apples are in season, easy pie recipes are a good way to use a large amount at one time. Any apple works well, it just depends on if you enjoy your apples firm or soft when baked, and sweet or tart.
