TWD/BWJ: French Apple Tart

Woo-hoo, this was good! But not quick. I think that's really what this whole exercise is about. If I wasn't baking this for Tuesdays With Dorie, I would never have attempted it. Already have a perfectly good go-to apple pie - my mother's apple crumb pie. It never would have occurred to me to make something else. See how I'm stretching my wings?

Didn't have a large tart pan, so I enlisted those cute little ones I bought for the Chocolate Truffle Tarts last year. I like individual servings anyway. And, half of one of these re-heated in the microwave for 25 seconds with vanilla ice cream is pretty close to heaven.

The recipe can be found here, and the other bloggers here.

Gotta run. There's a lot going on.

Here's a shoe. We had a presidential inauguration this week, so here's one I saw on Jimmy Carter Boulevard. I know it's fuzzy. You'll understand if you know the road.


  1. Your mini tarts looks great! It really was a time consuming all day event making this tart. Next time I am going to do the dough and apple filling ahead of time to break up the process. But I'm so glad I tried this, as it was a really good tart!

  2. Ooohhh, everything tastes better when its made in a mini version.
    Glad this was a hit for you.
    Have a good weekend.
