TWD: Tarte Tatin
TWD celebrates its second anniversary by offering two choices for the participants this week! As mentioned many times before (and I hope you haven't gotten sick of it yet) that I'm not a fan of chocolate dessert/ pastry, so it goes without saying that I chose tarte tatin over cocoa-buttermilk birthday cake. ;-)
Most of the tarte tatin recipes that I've come across call for puff pastry to be used but in this particular recipe, we are allowed to use pie or tart dough as well. I opted for the easiest way out by using the leftover sweet tart dough that I kept in the fridge. The rest of the steps are quite easy. Just cooked the apple slices, butter and sugar until caramelized, then arranged the apples on a baking pan, poured caramel over it, and lastly, covered the mixture with a piece of tart dough. The only tricky part is to flip the tarte tatin out of the baking pan but I'm glad that I managed to get it done! The tart is really yummy and I love its rustic look too!
