Apple Butter Tart Recipe

Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 Prepared Pie Crust
  • 1/2- 3/4 cup Apple Butter
  • 2-3 Firm Apples Large
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 TBS Butter Melted


  • Preheat oven to 450
  • Take thawed pie crust and roll out to fit the tart pan. If it’s rectangular and there is extra dough on the width, simply cut off and add to the length if needed.
  • With a fork, prick the dough all over the bottom and sides. Fit in a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper and fill with baking beans for pie weights.
  • Bake for 10 – 15minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool. Turn oven down to 350
  • While crust is cooling, slice apples approximately 1/8th of inch thick. (It’s optional to peel the apples, but the presentation is nice if the skins are still on the apple.)
  • Spread apple butter over the base of the tart crust.
  • Slicing the apple pieces in half to form a half moon shape, place the apples slices in an accordion type shape, overlapping each other slightly.
  • When the entire face of the tart is covered in the apple slices, sprinkle the cinnamon evenly over the top.
  • Drizzle the melted butter over the apples and place in the oven.
  • Bake for approximately 25 – 30 minutes or until the apples have softened but are not mushy.
  • Cool the tart before slicing and serve with ice cream!
