Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Make a sugar shell “crust” on the muffins:

  • 1/2 teaspoon organic raw sugar sprinkled over each muffin top before baking

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease each cup.

Melt butter in the bottom of a large bowl and whisk in sugar, lemon essential oil, vanilla extract, lemon zest, kefir, and egg until smooth.

Whisk in baking powder, baking soda and salt until fully combined, then lightly fold in flour and berries.

Divide between prepared muffin cups and then sprinkle each top with 1/2 teaspoon organic raw sugar.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until tops are golden brown and a tester inserted into the center of muffins comes out clean.

Let cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove to wire rack and serve while still warm.

Servings: 8
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Crust:

Filling:

Crust:

Combine flour, sugar, salt, butter and coconut oil in a food processor for about 5 seconds. Sprinkle ice water over the flour mixture and process until the pastry just begins to come together, about 10 seconds; you should still be able to see small pieces of butter in it.

Transfer the pastry to a work surface, gather it together and pat into a disk. Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap or wax paper and refrigerate until chilled, or roll out pastry and use it right away.

Filling:

Peel, halve and core the apples, and slice them crosswise about ¼ inch thick. Set aside the larger center slices, and coarsely chop the edge and any broken slices.

In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pastry to a 12-by-12-inch circle and transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet.

Spread the chopped apples over the pastry to within 1 inch of the edge. Drizzle the honey over the chopped apples. Decoratively arrange the apple slices on top.

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly over the apples and dot with the pieces of butter and coconut oil.

Fold the pastry edge up and over the apples to create a 1-inch border. Brush with milk.

Bake the tart for about 1 hour, until the pastry is nicely browned and crisp and all of the apples are tender.

Transfer the pan to a rack and let the tart cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
