Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

 

 
1 sheet frozen pie crust
1/2 cup almond paste (5 ounces)
1 large egg
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
5 cups thinly sliced apples
2 tablespoons apricot preserves, heated




Preheat the oven to 425°F. Coat a baking sheet with flavorless vegetable spray.


Put the dough on the baking sheet and using your fingers and a rolling pin, flatten it into a rectangle. Prick the dough all over with a fork; this prevents bubbling in the oven. Bake the dough rectangle for about 10 minutes or until it begins to brown.


Meanwhile, in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse the almond paste, egg, flour and sugar until smooth. By hand, fold 2 cups of the apples into the mixture and then spread this over the dough.


Layer the remaining sliced apples over the filling and then brush with the apricot preserves.


Broil about 5 inches from the heat for about 1 minute or until the apples begin to wilt.


Cut into squares and serve.
