You need a good non-stick skillet for this dish that you can put in the oven.
1 vanilla bean,scrape the center & remove pod
1/4 c water
juice from 1/2 of a small lemon
Boil/simmer until a brown caramel color, while cooking, add:
1 stick butter, cut in pieces, swirl in one piece at a time
Peel, core, slice 5 to 7 apples
place in caramel & cook 10 minutes
1 cup flour
1 stick butter
grated rind from lemon
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
pulse all together in food processor just until mixed
add ice water, drops at a time, until you have a firm pie crust consistency...about 2T
roll out dough between two pieces of wax paper to the size of your pan. pull off wax paper and place it on top of your apple/caramel mixture.
Bake for approx 25 min in a 350 degree.... I don't have the length of time written down so this is a guestimate.. sorry LOL
Let it cool a bit and then place a nice plate over the top, and invert so that the bottom of your apple tart becomes the top... and the crust is on the bottom. wha-la!!
Serve warm with a nice spoon of mascarpone cheese or ice cream! This is a very decadent dessert!!! It kind of like just melts in your mouth... probably all that butter!! lol
Edited *the apple cook time is 10 minutes
