Lets just start this entry out by saying…It’s a Keeper!! I have been on quite a streak of “non-success” as far as whether we liked the last few recipes so it was very refreshing to not only like it, but love it! If you would like the recipe please visit Gaye’s blog.
This recipe calls for one 9″ tart but I had to improvise. I didn’t have a large tart pan but I did have the six smaller ones we used for the chocolate tarts we made about a year ago….so I made six small ones. They actually worked perfectly because it was a lot easier to transport to my tasters. 🙂
The recipe calls for making a ledge around the tart which was fun once I got the hang of it and after tasting them I think I would even go thicker next time.
I think we loved this recipe because we are an apple family. I had to laugh when the recipe called for a “pinch” of cinnamon…who EVER puts a pinch of cinnamon?..maybe a pinch on each apple slice! This is my “pinch” haha! I stirred and actually added more! 🙂
Cooked down the apples and put them into the partially baked crusts.
The next step was a little difficult since my tarts were so small. The recipe called for making apple blossoms customary in french pastries. This is my smaller version. 😉
slightly browned on the edges…
I had the usual three family testers going on this recipe and I got unanimous reviews…everyone LOVED this one! I found the recipe to be a bit time consuming although I am sure the next time would be faster. I think I would say this and the berry galette (which we made with apples 🙂 ) would be my favorite recipes we have made in the past year. Simply delicious!!
