Easy French Apple Tart


  • 6 cups tart apples, sliced thinly
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sugar-substitute for baking
  • 3/4 cup fat-free half-and-half, or whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced fat biscuit mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 tablespoons less-fat margarine, (with 8 grams of fat per tablespoon)


Step 1
Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat a foil-lined springform pan with canola cooking spray, or coat a 9-inch, deep-dish pie pan with canola cooking spray.
Step 2
Add apple slices, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a large bowl and toss to blend. Pour apple mixture into prepared baking dish, arranging apple slices so they lay as flat as possible over each other.
Step 3
In mixing bowl, beat sugar blend, milk, 1/2 cup biscuit mix, egg, egg substitute, and canola oil together on medium speed until smooth. Pour batter over apples.
Step 4
Add remaining ingredients (1 cup biscuit mix, walnuts, brown sugar and margarine) to a 4-cup measure and mix with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle crumb mixture over the top of tart. Bake for 55-60 minutes, until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve hot or cold.
