Notes:

  • Dough should be crumbly not a smooth dough. So add water as required for crumbly dough. Cold water is a must ingredient in this recipe.
  • Salt is optional in this recipe but adding it brings out the exact flavor to this recipe.
  • Brushing dough with milk that gives a nice golden brown color to the crust.
  • You can serve mini apple cinnamon tart with vanilla ice cream on top.
