  • 12 tablespoons VEGAN Margarine very cold
  • 3 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Shortening very cold
  • 6 tablespoons Ice Water


  • 4 Apples (such as Golden Delicious)
  • 2/3 c Brown Sugar packed
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Allspice
  • 1/4 c Cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp Lemon Juice


  • 2 tbsp Coconut Cream
  • 1/4 c Coarse Sugar for topping


  • Prepare the dough in a food processor, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • In a skillet, add the vegan margarine and all of the sugars and spices along with the apples.  Saute until the apples are almost tender and remove from the heat.
  • Add the cornstarch and lemon juice, stirring to combine well.
  • Roll the dough, cutting rounds that are slightly larger than the muffin pan.  Fit the dough into the muffin cups.
  • Divide the filling evenly, brushing the edges of the dough with coconut cream and sprinkling the tarts with the coarse sugar reserved for topping.
  • Bake until bubbly and golden brown.  Cool slightly in the pan before removing.
