TWD - Parisian Apple Tartlet
This week's TWD recipe was chosen by Jessica of My Baking Heart nd is Parisian Apple Tartlet. I must be honest and say that this is a recipe which didnt really appeal to me. I am not a huge lover of flaky pastry (although I do love short crust pastry!!) so the idea of an apple tart which was basically an apple on flaky pastry, dotted with butter and sprinkled with brown sugar, didnt really appeal.
But, I must say, I was very pleasantly surprised!! It's recipes like these that make you glad you bake with the other TWDers as I truly would not have tried this recipe but or it being picked. My husband and I both loved it. I used some rough flaky pastry that I had made some time ago and frozen. I used a gala apple as they are in season at the moment. The tart was delicious - enough brown sugar to make it slightly sweet and the butter dotted on top gave a lovely golden colour to the tart. We ate ours with mascarpone and it was very yummy.
See if the other TWDers enjoyed it as much as we did here.
