Apple Tart (Elmali Tart)

150 gram butter/margarine, room temperature
2 Tbsp yogurt
1 egg
½ cup sugar
¼ cup canola oil
1 tsp baking powder
2 ½ cups flour
2-3 apples, shredded,
4 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup crushed walnuts
Powdered sugar for garnish

Take shredded apples and 4 Tbsp sugar into a pot and cook until the water is absorbed and the mixture gets viscous. Stir in cinnamon and walnuts. Turn the heat off. Let it cool.
Meanwhile, in a kneading bowl start mixing sugar and butter/margarine with your hands. Add yogurt, canola oil and other ingredients, respectively.
Knead the dough until it turns out as soft as cookie dough. Take the half of it and place over a greased oven pan. Fit the dough into the pan by flattening it. Pour the apple mixture over. Then, take the other half of the dough and grab grape size random pieces and throw randomly over the tart. Try to use all the dough evenly on all over the tart. Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C) and bake until the top gets pink (for about 30-40 minutes).
Take the apple tart out of the oven and let it cool. Garnish with powdered sugar with a swifter. Slice in squares and serve.
P.S: I substituded 1 cup of the flour with whole wheat flour.

Hi! I have to make a traditional dish for a school project, and I was going to make this recipe, however, we have a nut free school. So my question would be how would they turn out without the walnut in them? Texture wise, would they still turn out well enough to serve?

You may use this recipe without the walnuts. It won't change the texture but maybe the flavor a little bit. But that's not a big deal.
Good luck.
