Rustic Apple and Pear Tart
  • 7  cups  apples and/or pears, peeled, if desired, cored, and cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 2  tablespoons  lemon juice
  • 1/4  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 17 1/4 ounce package  puff pastry (1 sheet)
  • 1  egg white, slightly beaten
  • 1  tablespoon  butter or margarine
