Tarte Alsacienne

Ingredients & Directions

1/2 lb Butter
1/2 lb Cream cheese
2 ts Vanilla
2 c Flour

1 1/2 c Half and half
2 Eggs
3 c Thinly sliced, green apples
– (peeled)
1/2 c Sugar
1 ts Vanilla extract
1/4 ts Mace

CREAM BUTTER, CREAM CHEESE and vanilla together in a mixer or
processor. Reduce speed to low and add the flour. Mix until
incorporated. Remove the dough from the mixer, form into 3 balls and
wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 1 hour before using. Uncooked dough
can be frozen for up to 2 months. Freeze uncooked balls of dough or
freeze dough in pie tins.

FILLING: Place a ball of chilled dough on a piece of lightly floured
wax paper and pound with a rolling pin to flatten and soften. Roll
the dough into an 11-inch circle, lift it with the wax paper and
invert onto a 9-inch glass pie dish. Press firmly into the dish and
gently remove and discard wax paper. Place in refrigerator to chill.
Preheat oven to 400F. Arrange apples in the pie crust. In a bowl,
beat together eggs, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla and mace. Pour the
mixture over the apples. Place the pie in the oven and bake until the
mixture is set, about 30 minutes. The dough recipe makes about 3
10-inch pies.
