1 refrigerated fill-and-bake pie crust (7 to 7-1/2 ounces)
3 large Granny Smith apples (about 1-1/2 pounds total), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sour half-and-half, or 1/4 cup nonfat sour cream
1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Put the pie crust into a 9-inch-diameter tart pan with a removable bottom; press the crust against the fluted edge and trim off any pastry that extends over the top. Roll the trimmed dough into a ball; flatten to 1/4 inch and cut 2 or 3 shapes with a cookie cutter. Prick the tart shell in several places with the tines of a fork.
Put the sliced apples in a large bowl; drizzle them with lemon juice and toss to mix.
In a small bowl, blend the brown sugar, sour half-and-half, tapioca, and cinnamon.
Fold the brown sugar mixture into the apples until all the fruit is coated. Spoon the apples into the tart shell; arrange the dough shapes on top of the apples. Sprinkle granulated sugar over the top.
Bake for 35 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Cut in 8 equal slices. Serve hot or at room temperature.
