As the Taste of Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival winds down, Disney now teases us with a yummy Apple Crumble Tart recipe from the upcoming Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This next festival starts July 15 and runs through November 20. Admission to the festival and the Eat to the Beat concerts is included in your park ticket. 

Kids will hope that Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt will be offered again, while I am dreaming of the return of a venison dish.

But October 1st is the date that everyone is anticipating, as it is the opening day for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and when La Crêperie de Paris, featuring the cuisine of celebrity chef Jérôme Bocuse (son of famous French chef Paul Bocuse) will also be ready to serve guests.

Apple Crumble Tart

Now to the Apple Crumble recipe!


Tart Dough
5 tablespoons butter, softened 
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour 

Apple Filling
3 tablespoons butter 
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced (2 cups) 
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water 

2/3 cup all-purpose flour 
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold butter, cubed 


For the tart dough
Cream butter, sugar, and salt in bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment until fluffy. Add egg, and mix until smooth. Add flour, and mix on medium speed until combined. 

Divide dough evenly into 8 balls. Roll each ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes. 

For the apple filling
Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat until melted. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and apples; cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until apples begin to soften. 

Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Add to apple mixture and cook for 3 minutes or until sauce around apples thickens. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. 

For the crumble
Combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and butter in food processor. Pulse until pea-size crumbs form. Set aside.

For the apple pie tarts
Preheat oven to 350°F. 

Remove dough from refrigerator. Roll each ball into an 1/8-inch-thick circle and press into 3-inch tart pans, trimming excess dough from edges. Pierce the bottom of each tart shell with a fork several times. Place a 4-inch square of parchment paper on top of each tart shell and fill with pie weights or beans. Place tart pans on a large baking sheet. 

Bake tart shells for 15 minutes. Carefully remove pie weights or beans and parchment paper, and bake an additional 5 minutes. 

Place 1/4 cup apple filling in each tart and top with 3 tablespoons of the crumble topping. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crumble is golden brown. 

Cool before serving. Bon Appétit!

    Hey Liliane!
    I always enjoy your food and dining stories. You know I love me a brown sugar-butter-apple recipe, thank you very much. And I usually like your photos, but the dish that Justin is holding at the beginning of the article? That needs a food stylist, sorry. What the heck IS it–doesn’t look good at all, LOL. Maybe it’s the venison dish? Ratatouille [the Rat] on the roof top is darling! Ta!
