Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Prepare 9 in. tart pan with vegetable pan spray

Step 2

For crust, stir together melted butter, sugar, vanilla and salt in large bowl. Add flour; stir until just combined. Evenly press into the bottom and up the sides of pan. With fork, prick dough all over. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

Step 3

Remove tart from refrigerator; bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.

Step 4

For filling, combine sugar, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Arrange apples in tart pan in an overlapping circular pattern, working from outside in. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Step 5

Bake on cookie sheet 55-60 minutes until apples are soft and crust is golden brown.

Step 6

While tart bakes, make glaze. Add cider to large skillet. Cook over medium heat until liquid has reduced to two tablespoons, about 10-15 minutes. Reduce heat to low; add corn syrup and sugar. Stir continuously until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.

Step 7

Re-warm glaze over low heat, if needed, and brush on tart when it is removed from the oven. Cool tart completely in pan on cooling grid.
