Macintosh Apple Tart

This fresh apple tart looks and tastes great.
A store bought pie crust makes this easy as pie.
I use macintosh apples because they bake up good,
you can use any baking apples you have on hand.
Granny Smith and Ida Reds are good choices.

1 pie crust
3 Macintosh apples
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter

Remove pie crust from refrigerator and
let come to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl combine sugar,
flour,cinnamon and salt.
Peel, core and slice apples,
add apples to mixing bowl.
Un roll pie crust and press into pie plate,
letting the excess overhang the edges.
Arrange apples on top of crust and
dot top of apples with butter.
Fold over the crust all the way around
and on top of the apples.
The center should be an open circle.
Place aluminum foil around outside crust
and bake for abot 45 minutes.
Remove foil to finish browning the crust.
