This morning we woke up to 4 inches of snow. So much for spring, right? Somehow my inspirations turned back to winter stews instead of fresh, colorful veggie dishes and apple pies instead of rhubarb and strawberry.
I have to say that baking pies is not my forte. My crusts turn out like cardboard- flaky, tender crusts do not come easy for me. But, these rustic tarts are a different story! No crimping the edges and trying to get the top crust to look perfect. It's my favorite kind of "pie" to bake. I'm quite certain that you can use any filling that you would like, but since it felt like winter today, I chose carmel apple.
I made two of these tarts, because with 4 growing boys around here, treats like these never stay around long. I had barely taken the first one from the oven, walked into another room when I heard a report of a certain 14 yr. old trying to help himself to a sample. I quickly rescued the first slice before it was devoured. My, it was almost too much for them to walk by that warm apple tart smell and not pick at them. But, as soon as they were cool, I took them out and had a really fun photoshoot with these little tarts. Knowing that the guys would want to have a taste as soon as they possibly could, I took one directly to the shop where they were working and let them dig in. Within several hours, both were gone crumbs and all.
