Place pie crust in ungreased 9 inch tart pan. Press firmly against sides ans bottom. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine, apples, bananas, 1/2 cup almonds, sugar, vanilla, corn starch and cinnamon. Fill tart with fruit mixture; top with the remaining 1/2 cup almonds and sprinkle 1 tablespoon granulated sugar.



Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until nice and golden brown.
TIP : For a nice attractive look, brush with a mixture of 1 tablespoon jam and 1 tablespoon water. It gives a beautiful shine!

Let it cool before cutting and serving, or add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top while is still hot!
Either way it's a scrumptious dessert that no one wants to miss!
