  1. 1. Blend flour, butter, egg, caster sugar and water in a food processor until pastry comes together. Form into a ball, flatten, wrap and refrigerate 15 minutes. Roll out between two sheets of baking paper to 5mm thickness.
  2. 2. Arrange apple slices in a buttered 25cm round flan dish.
  3. 3. Heat water, sugar and lemon juice, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil without stirring until a golden caramel. Stir in extra butter and pour evenly over apples.
  4. 4. Cover with pastry and trim edges. Bake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes until golden. Cool before turning out upside down onto a dish and serve with cream.
  5. Tip: For picnics, transport this tart in the flan dish and turn out just before serving.
