Mini Apple Tarts

  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut in chunks
  • 1-2 tablespoons water

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Grease four 4-inch tart pans.
  2. Whisk together the millet flour, coconut flour, tapioca starch, 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Place in the bowl of a food processor. Add the butter. Pulse a few times to distribute the butter throughout. Add the water a little at a time while pulsing until the dough looks crumbly. Press into the tart pans.
  3. Thinly slice the apple and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the remaining tablespoon of sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Layer the apple into the tart shells.

Making Mini Apple Tarts | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

The trick to forming the tart crust is to start with the sides. Press all the way around the edges, then do the bottom.

I ended up ripping each of my apple slices in half so that they were short enough to layer nicely. There seems to be a multitude of ways to layer fruit into a tart, and I am not very adept at it, so you might come up with a better way.
