Rustic Apple Tart

 Is anyone else out there in disbelief that Thanksgiving is next Thursday like me? Boy, time sure is flying around here! While I will not be cooking the dinner this year, I will be bringing along a trail of desserts and possibly some appetizers.  One of my favorite fall desserts is apple pie -  to me nothing says the season like the combination of apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of ginger.  I recently made this rustic apple tart and quickly fell into pie love. It was so easy to just arrange the apples in a rosette pattern, fold up the crust, sprinkle on sanding sugar and place in the oven. I have considered completely forgoing using a pie pan going forward, it is that easy. 


A Few Things: You can make either one large tart, or smaller individual tarts that would also be fun to serve at Thanksgiving. If you want to, slightly warm before serving and scoop a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream on top for an even more perfect dessert.

    1. Good you shouldn't! If you make homemade just leave in the refrigerator until you use it...let it come to room temperature before you roll it out and you should be all set:)
