1.  Sauté the apples in butter with a split vanilla bean (optional). When the apples start to brown, sprinkle over 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar.

2.  Continue sautéing until the apples are deep, dark brown on both sides.

3.  Arrange the apples in a prebaked tart shell placed on a sheet pan.

4.  Whisk together the eggs and 1/3 cup granulated sugar until smooth and add the milk. Pour the mixture into the tart shell.

5.  Bake until the custard no longer jiggles when you move the sheet pan gently back and forth.

6.  Allow to cool, and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar just before serving.
