Apple Tart

What do you do when you don't have a recipe for an apple tart and don't feel like searching for one online?  You make a crust and a half recipe of apple pie!  I used Krusteaz mix for the crust, because I'm lazy.  So for the filling:

1/4 cup to 1/4 + 1/8 cup sugar (to taste)
1/2 teas. cinnamon
1 tables. dry tapioca
very small dash salt
3 cups apples (I used 4 apples)
1 tables. butter

Peel, core, and chop apples.  Sprinkle with lemon juice to avoid browning.  Combine remaining ingredients (except butter) into apples.  Pour into crust (in the tart pan).  Cut butter into small pieces and put over apples. Bake for about 35 minutes at 425F.  The apples should be soft when poked with toothpick, and the crust will be lightly browned.

It's very very good;  I already had two pieces today.
