Good morning to you all! I hope you're all well and you've all had a lovely weekend? Things were a little strange here I have to say... No matter how much I tried to relax, I felt slightly on edge. I tried reading, but couldn't concentrate on my book. I felt restless without knowing why. So I baked.
This apple tart is like my comfort blanket. It's relatively easy to make and is one of those things I turn to when it's cold outside, I feel in need of something comforting and familiar, and when I need to relax. The process of making the dough and peeling the apples is one that I don't need to think about anymore, it happens semi-automatic and I can just let my thoughts wander...
So, this is my Tarte aux pommes à l'Alsacienne - but with a little difference. I add cinnamon to the topping. The combination of apples and cinnamon on top of the shortcrust pastry gives it a "cold weather twist" and adds just a little bit of extra flavour to the apple tart. If you would like to make this one, then pop over to the @Home blog here where the recipe and instructions are posted.
I hope you will give this one a go and enjoy it. Wishing you all a lovely week ahead.
