  • 6 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped into 1.5cm dice
  • zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 75ml water


  • 150g plain flour
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 100g rolled oats


  • 125g caster sugar
  • 300 ml double cream
  • 65g unsalted butter, cut into small dice
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 300ml rum & raisin ice-cream
  • 4 sheets of shortcrust pastry, frozen


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Place the apple, lemon zest and juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook for 15–20 minutes until the apple softens. Add a little water if the mixture becomes too thick and is catching in the pan. Remove from the heat.
  • Remove the pastry from the freezer, separate the sheets and allow to few minutes for the pastry to soften. Line four 8cm tart tins with the pastry. Trim the edges, prick the base with a fork and blind-bake for 10-15 minutes until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  • To make the crumble, combine the flour, butter, sugar, oats and a pinch of salt in a large bowl and, using your fingertips, work the ingredients into a coarse crumble. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. (baked at the same time as the pastry).
  • For the butterscotch sauce, put the sugar into a heavy-based saucepan with 1 tbsp water and melt over low heat, tilting the pan occasionally so the sugar melts evenly. Increase the heat to medium and cook, without stirring, until it turns into a golden-brown caramel. Slowly pour in the cream, being careful as the hot caramel will spit. Turn the heat to low and let the caramel dissolve slowly into the cream. Remove from heat and whisk in the butter, a few pieces at a time.
  • Spoon in the apple filling and sprinkle on the crumble.
  • Serve the tarts with a scoop of rum and raisin ice cream on top and drizzle with butterscotch.
