Ingredients
  • 4tablespoons butter
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced into 1/4 inch cubes
  • 6tablespoons Unicoi Preseves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1/4cup light brown sugar
  • 1/8teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 Laura Lynn Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 4 slices Pine Street Market Bacon, cooked crispy and chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. In a 10″ pan, melt 2 T. butter over medium heat. Add apples and cook 5-10 minutes until softened, stirring occasionally. Stir in 3 T. of Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread and kosher salt. Cook 5 more minutes, then set aside to cool.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, cut remaining 2 T. butter into small pieces and mix with flour and 1/4 c. brown sugar. Mash them together with a fork or your fingers until they resemble pebbles, then stir in the bacon.
  4. Lightly sprinkle work surface with flour. Unroll 1 pie crust and using a 4 inch round cutter, cut dough into 7 circles. You will have to re-roll your dough scraps to get 7, but it will work. Gently press the dough into your greased muffin tins or Lodge Cast Iron Mini Cake Pans. Sprinkle the bottom of each tart with cornstarch, this will prevent soggy crust. Nobody likes soggy pie crust.
  5. Spoon apple mixture into each tart and top with bacon streusel.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until pie crust is golden brown and apple mixture is bubbling and streusel looks happy. Cool on wire rack.
  7. Take remaining 3 T. Apple Cider Pepper Spread and microwave it for 10-15 seconds and drizzle over the top of the tarts before serving.
