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.
