Carmelized Apple Tart

This Recipe is from Australia, and is a great topper after a meal. Enjoy it!  Serves 4-6

60z (1 1/2 cubes) butter
165g (3/4 cup) caster sugar
2 tbs water
4 apples, peeled, cored and quartered

1 pie crust rolled out to about 1/4 inch thickness

Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6( Which means in US heat oven to 400 degrees F.) Place an 18cm frying pan with an ovenproof handle over medium heat. Add the butter and allow to melt. Add the sugar and water and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved. Continue to cook for 5 minutes or until golden and syrupy. Add the apples and cook for 5 minutes. Allow the bubbles to subside then arrange the apple pieces in a circular pattern, core-side up, over the base of the frying pan.

Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 3mm thickness. Cut out a 24cm circle and place over the apples, tucking the edge under. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden. To serve, invert the tart onto a plate.
