Apple Tart


  1. Select  the Preheat function on the Cosori Smart Air Fryer Toaster Oven, adjust temperature to 400°F, and press Start/Pause.   
  2. Poke holes across the bottom of the pie crust using a fork. This will prevent the pie crust from puffing up and changing shape.  
  3. Core the apples and slice them into ¼-inch-thick slices. 
  4. Combine the lemon juice, salt, and apple slices in a large bowl. Add enough water to cover the apples.  
  5. Place the pie crust onto the baking sheet, then insert the baking sheet at mid position into the preheated oven. 
  6. Select the Bake function, adjust temperature to 400°F and time to 5 minutes, then press Start/Pause.    
  7. Remove the pie crust when done, and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.  
  8. Mix the apricot preserves with 1 tablespoon of water in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir well. 
  9. Drain the apple slices from the water and shake off excess water.  
  10. Brush a layer of loosened apricot preserves across the entire surface of the cooled pie crust.  
  11. Layer the apple slices in concentric circles inside the crust to form a rose-like pattern, alternating apple colors if desired. Using the same process, create a second layer to fill the crust to the top. There should be a hole in the center of both layers where the ring of apples becomes too tight to continue making circles. 
  12. Create a “rose bud” in the center by laying down 2 apple slices vertically into the hole, each slice mirroring the other to create a circle. Afterwards, stand up 3 apple slices to lean against each other horizontally over the apple circle. 
  13. Brush the top of the apples with the loosened apricot preserves, then sprinkle with turbinado sugar and cubed butter. 
  14. Place the tart onto the baking sheet, then insert the baking sheet at mid position into the preheated oven. 
  15. Select the Bake function, adjust temperature to 375°F and time to 30 minutes, press Shake, then press Start/Pause.  
  16. Tent the top with aluminum foil halfway through cooking. The Shake Reminder will let you know when.  
  17. Remove when done and let cool completely before slicing and serving.
