Ingredients

How to make it

  • For caramel sauce:
  • Bring sugar, cream, and butter to boil in heavy medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisking constantly until sugar dissolves. Boil until caramel thickens enough to coat spoon thickly, whisking often, about 10 minutes.
  • DO AHEAD Caramel sauce can be made 5 days ahead. Cover; chill. Whisk over low heat until warm before using.
  • For crust:
  • Blend flour, powdered sugar, and salt in processor.
  • Add butter and blend until coarse meal forms.
  • Add egg yolks. Pulse until moist clumps form.
  • Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap and chill at least 1 hour.
  • DO AHEAD Dough for tart crust can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.
  • For filling:
  • Whisk first 4 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Add apples and toss until evenly coated.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 13-inch round.
  • Transfer to 9-inch-diameter tart pan with removable bottom.
  • Cut overhang even with top of pan sides.
  • Press sides of dough to bring 1/4 inch above sides of pan.
  • Arrange apple quarters, cut side down, in circle around outer edge of pan, fitting snugly.
  • Cut remaining apple quarters lengthwise in half; stand in center of tart, fitting snugly.
  • Bake tart until apples are tender, about 1 hour 15 minutes.
  • Remove tart from oven; brush with some of caramel sauce.
  • Cool tart to room temperature.
  • Rewarm remaining caramel sauce.
  • Drizzle tart lightly with sauce.
  • Serve, passing remaining sauce separately.
