Caramelized Apple Tart

1 ½ cups - Florida Crystals® Demerara Sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
½ cup - water
¼ cup - butter
7 - Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 8 wedges per apple
1 - ready-made refrigerated folded pie crust

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place Florida Crystals® Demerara Sugar, lemon juice, and water in a 10-inch, oven-proof skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring gently, until the water evaporates and sugar turns golden brown. Add butter and apples. Toss apples in pan until they are fully coated with the sugar mixture. Remove pan from burner.

Unfold the pie dough. Lay the pie dough in the pan, fully covering the apple mixture, tucking the excess dough back into the pan. Poke a few holes with a fork to allow steam to escape. Place skillet in oven and bake until pie dough is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven.

Cool 3 minutes and invert onto serving platter. Wear oven mitts because the pan and apple juices are very hot.

Serving Quantity: 1 tart

Quick Tip:
If desired, serve warm with ice cream.


This is a nice alternative to the usual apple pie. The caramelized apple flavor is truly delicious!
