Directions

FOR CRUST:

Combine flour and salt in large bowl. Add 10 tablespoons room temperature butter and cut in, using pastry blender or fingers, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Using for, stir in water.

Knead mixture in bowl gently with fingertips just until smooth dough forms. Shape into rectangle, wrap in plastic and refrigerate 1 hour.

Cut 10 tablespoons chilled butter into 9 equal pieces. Arrange pieces side by side on waxed paper, forming square. Cover with second sheet of waxed paper.

Pound butter several times with rolling pin to make butter more pliable. Peel off waxed apper. Break into small pieces.

Roll out dough on floured surface to 9 x 5 inch rectangle. Turn so that 1 short side faces you. Arrange butter pieces evenly over low 6 inches of dough.

Fold unbuttered 3 inches of dough over half of buttered dough. Fold remaining 3 inches of buttered dough over, folding as for letter. Roll out to 12 x 18-inch rectangle. Fold short sides over to meetin in center, then fold in half in same direction, forming approximately 12 x 4½-inch rectangle.

Repeat rolling to 12 x 18-inch rectangle and folding to 12 x 4½-inch rectangle. Wrap in plastic; chill. (Can be made 3 days ahead. Keep chilled.)

FOR FILLING:

Melt butter in heavy ovenproof 10-inch skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat. Add sugar and stir until sugar melts and mixture is golden brown, about 8 minutes.

Remove skillet from heat.

Arrange half of apples, rounded side down, in concentric circles in skillet. Place remaining apples, cut side down, atop first layer of apples.

Cover skillet. Simmer over low heat until apples are almost tender, about 25 minutes. Uncover skillet. Increase heat to medium-low; simmer until apples are very tender and liquid is reduced to ¼ cup syrup on bottom of pan, pressing apples down into liquid occasionally, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, prehat oven to 400℉ (200℃). Cut dough in half. Let 1 piece stand at room temperature until slightly softened, about 15 minutes. (Freeze second piece of dough for another use.)

Roll out dough to 12-inch-diameter round.

Place dough atop hot apples in skillet. Trim edge, leaving generous ½-inch overhang. Fold overhang down tightly around apples.

Cut several slits in dough to allow steam to escape.

Bake tart until crust is golden, about 45 minutes.

Let cool 5 minutes. Run small knife around edge of skillet to loosen tart. Place large platter over skillet.

Using oven mitts, grasp platter and skillet and invert, letting tart settle onto platter. Carefully lift off skillet. Place any apples still in skillet on tart. Cool slightly; serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
