Apple Rose Tart
Preheat oven to 425°F with a rack in bottom position. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough 1/8-inch-thick. Trim dough to a 12-inch round; fit into a 10-inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom. Trim edges to 1 inch, then fold under to double thickness of edge. Stir together jam and ginger; spread over dough in pan. Refrigerate 20 minutes.Advertisement
Meanwhile, toss together Pink Lady apple slices, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons flour, 1 teaspoon vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Starting from outside, tightly shingle apples over dough in pan in concentric circles, covering two-thirds of dough.
In another bowl, toss together Granny Smith apple slices and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon flour, 1 teaspoon vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Shingle apples over dough in pan in center, leaving any excess juice and sugar in bowl. When you get to the very center, roll up a very thin apple slice or two to create center of "rose". Stir a few drops of water into bowl with residual fruit juices and sugar to create a glaze; set aside.
Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F and continue baking until apples are tender and crust is golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes more, brushing with glaze from bowl once during cooking and once after removing from oven. Transfer pan to a wire rack; let cool 15 minutes. Remove sides of pan and transfer tart to rack; let cool at least 15 minutes more. Serve warm or room temperature. Tart can be stored, covered with parchment-lined foil, at room temperature up to 1 day.
You can also toss both apple types together before shingling, rather than separating them.
