Apple Halwa Tarts for Sweet Punch October 2011

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Its Sweet Punch time!!! This time we baked Jam Tarts from Rias Collection. I have tried Apple halwa filling, instead of the Jam Filling. After Navarathri, we are leftover with so many Apples from the Thambulam bags, i keep making something with them. I have halved the original recipe.  Warm Tart with Apple Halwa tasted heavenly. Hope you guys enjoy this!!!!

Ingredients for the Tarts
1/2 Cup All purpose Flour
1/2 stick Cold butter
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
Salt a pinch
Few drops of Water
A small piece of dough was leftover, made these designs using them
inspiration Courtesy : Taste of Pearl City!!!!

  • Sift together Flour, Salt and Baking Powder in a bowl.  
  • Cut the Butter into small pieces and rub into the flour. the flour will resemble bread crumbs.  
  • Sprinkle few drops of water and make the dough.
  • Roll out the dough in between Wax paper and Cut it into small rounds using a cookie cutter.

  • Spread the Cut dough onto the tart-tin. Spoon in the filling and Bake in a Pre-heated Oven @ 180C for 18-20 minutes.
  • When done, take it out of the Oven and let it cool on the Wire Rack.  
Apple Halwa Ingredients
5 Medium Apples, Soft ones, Cored and Grated
1 cup Sugar

3-4 Cloves
Roasted almond flakes for garnishing.

  • Add the Shredded apple to the Sugar  and Combine Well. 
  • Add the Crushed Cardamom and Cloves to this.Let the Mixture Cook Well. 
  • When Mixture thickens well and leaves the sides of the pan, Take it of the Stove and Garnish it with some roasted almond flakes.

  • The filling can even be a Savory one. So, Go on Experiment!!!!
