  • Pate Brisee
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce
  • 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, halved, and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 5 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)


  1. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out pate brisee to a 16-by-11-inch rectangle, trimming if necessary, and transfer to a large baking sheet. Prick dough all over with a fork. Transfer to refrigerator; chill for 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with a rack set in the middle.

  3. Pour applesauce onto center of dough; using an offset spatula, spread evenly over dough leaving a 1/2-inch border all around. Arrange apples on top of applesauce in three tight rows down the length of the dough, using 2 apples per row. Brush with melted butter and dust heavily with confectioners' sugar.

  4. Bake, rotating the baking sheet two-thirds of the way through the baking time, until golden brown, about 50 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack.

  5. Meanwhile, heat jam in a small saucepan over low heat until warm; strain through a fine mesh strainer. Brush jam over warm pizza. Using a pizza wheel, cut into squares and serve.

    Made this today since it seems so easy on the show. The brisee was a bit hard to roll out but I stuck with it. I baked it for 50 minutesas instructed, and the apples burned. I think 50 minutes is way to long. Unfortunately the last 10 minutes I did not check it, I would say 40 minutes would be better. The applesauce leaked on the side and burned as well. Not very happy with the results unfortunately. I had hoped to serve this to guests tomorrow.

    I've cooked this twice now and I get better at it each time - it was a big hit each time. I don't think you can go wrong. My wife has been telling everyone about it so there is not doubt that I will be cooking it again. This tasty treat won't last long because it's so tasty and easy to eat.

    I tried this recipe today and it came out just like it did on your show. It is so yummy! I tested it so I can bring it to next week's potluck party. I just know it will be a huge hit. Thanks Martha for your wonderful show. Just love it!
