Easy French Apple Tart Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Apple tart:
  • 6 cups thinly sliced tart apples
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking
  • 3/4 cup fat-free half-and-half or whole milk
  • 1/2 cup Reduced Fat Bisquick
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Crumb topping:
  • 1 cup Reduced Fat Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 tablespoons less-fat margarine (with 8 grams of fat per tablespoon)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Coat a foil-lined springform pan with canola cooking spray, or coat a 9-inch, deep-dish pie pan with canola cooking spray.
  2. Add apple slices, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a large bowl and toss to blend. Pour apple mixture into prepared baking dish, arranging apple slices so they lay as flat as possible over each other.
  3. In mixing bowl, beat sugar blend, milk, 1/2 cup biscuit mix, egg, egg substitute, and canola oil together on medium speed until smooth. Pour batter over apples.
  4. Add remaining ingredients (1 cup biscuit mix, walnuts, brown sugar and less-fat margarine) to a 4-cup measure and mix with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle crumb mixture over the top of tart. Bake for 55-60 minutes, until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve hot or cold.
