Categories: Apples / Desserts / Fruits / Tarts

1 1/3  Cups  Flour
1  Pinch  Salt
7  Tablespoons  Unsalted Butter, cut in small pieces
2  Tablespoons  Sugar
1    Egg Yolk
3  Tablespoons  Ice Water, (approximately)
2  Pounds  Apples, (Macintosh)
3  Tablespoons  Lemon Juice
3    Eggs
1/2  Cup  Sugar
1/2  Cup  Whipping Cream
1/2  Teaspoon  Vanilla

To make pastry: Sift flour and salt into large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles bread crumbs. With a fork, lightly mix in sugar, egg yolk and enough ice water to make a dough. Press into a ball and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 30 minutes. On a floured surface, roll out dough to fit a 9-inch springform pan, including sides. Place dough in pan without stretching. Pierce bottom with fork. Preheat oven to 400. To make filling: Peel, quarter, and core apples. Thinly slice each quarter several times without cutting all the way through. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Arrange apples in pastry shell. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and sugar until pale and creamy. Add cream and vanilla. Pour egg mixture over apples. Bake 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake 25 minutes longer or until custard filling is firm.
