TWD: Tarte Fine

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Leslie of Lethally Delicious. This is really a forgiving recipe: As easy and delicious as this was, I managed to have nothing but issues with it!

I started off having to go to three different stores to find the puff pastry. My usual grocery store (Albertson’s) has had it in the past but they seem to be phasing a lot of stuff out lately, and no longer had it. The golden delicious apples that I did manage to find went rotten within three days of bringing them home, which, even for Albertson’s, is a new record. I think I need to start shopping at Smith’s.

Then, when I was prepping the apples, I managed to read the recipe on the opposite page of the one I was supposed to be using, and cut them a little thicker than they were supposed to be (not a big deal, they ended up getting cooked through anyway.) I put the tarte in the oven for the least recommended amount of time and still managed to get a little too much color along the edges. And, in my eagerness to try the tarte and get pictures, I completely forgot the apricot glaze. It’s a good thing I’m not a rocket scientist.

I did add a little bit of cinnamon to the sugar sprinkled over the top, and I think if I make this again I’ll go with Granny Smith apples, which I prefer for baking.

But as I said, it still turned out very yummy and the kids loved it, too.
