apple and blueberry tart

this came from cookinglight as well and i adapated it quite a bit. added dried berries cause we had plenty on hand. its a great and yummy way to use up those juicy and crunchy fall apples. you can use all different kinds..i had a ton of gala apples so thats what i used and i did not peel them since we love apple skin! this tart is totally vegan too!


1 tsp organic dry yeast
1 tbl organic grade b maple syrup
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups organic unbleached bread flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbl walnut oil divided
4 apples, your choice, sliced thin
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup maple syrup

in a small bowl sprinkle yeast and 1 tbl maple syrup in warm water and let stand 10 min.

combine flour, salt and cinnamon in food processor. slowly add yeast mixture to flour while on. add 2 1/2 tsp oil while processor is on; process until dough leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball.

turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly 4 times. oil large bowl and toss in dough. cover to coat with oil. cover and let rise 45 min. punch down and turn out. roll into 12 in circle and place on oiled baking sheet. brush with some oil and cover and let rise 30 min.

lay apple slices over dough and sprinkle with dried blueberries or dried berries of choice; sprinkle with cinnamon. bake at 400F for 20 min or until golden.

heat 1/2 cup of syrup in a small, heavy saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat for about 5-8 min. remove from heat and let cool for a minute. pour over apples. Serve warm.

I never really saw the point of peeling apples for tarts, they look so pretty with the peel on, (and they taste good too!).
