For the Apples
Peel the apples and slice them thinly and evenly.

Set the bowl aside while you make the pastry.
For the Pastry
Stir together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
Melt the butter and add it to the flour mixture. Use a fork to stir it until it comes together.
Press the dough evenly into a tart pan making sure to get the dough up the sides.
Assemble the Tart
Drain the apple slices and reserve the juices.
Arrange the apple slices in the tart pan. This can be done as a design or just by place the apples in the pan.
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the apples and dot with the diced butter.
Bake for 45-60 minutes until the apples are cooked and the pastry browned.
If you like, make a glaze by reducing the apple juices until they have thickened or melt ¼ cup apricot or apple jelly over low heat. Brush the glaze over the hot apples.
Let the tart cool and carefully remove the it from the tart pan.
