Apples!! Butter!! Puff Pastry!!

How can you possibly go wrong with such a great ingredient list??

    I’ll let you in on a little secret – You Can’t!! EVER!!

    Tarte Fine

….aka Apple Pizza! But like Dorie suggests, (and Juliet said)

      O, be some other name!
      What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
      By any other name would smell as sweet;

And this was sweet no matter what it is called.

Using Martha Stewart’s Rough Puff Pastry I made the recipe as listed except, yes that is what I said –EXCEPT, I sprinkled the crust with Cinnamon Sugar before carefully placing the apple slices over the pastry. I just couldn’t leave the apples lonely like that. And then I sprinkled more cinnamon sugar OVER the apples just to give them a nice comfy blanket. That’s just the way I roll!!!

The pastry didn’t puff as much as I would have liked but I think it was because I had thawed/chilled/warmed/chilled it too much trying to find time to actually make the tarte. I can’t believe it took me so long considering how totally easy it was to put together.

Warm from the oven, topped with a little whipped cream it was delicious.

Thanks for this one, Leslie (of Lethally Delicious). There was no way I was going to skip this one.

And I bet not many of the other TWD Bakers skipped this one either. Go see!!

And stay tuned in October when the new Dorie Group starts cooking from her new book – Around My French Table – fantastic French food made simple and comfortable. It is going to be AMAZING!!!
