Tarte aux Pommes

Fresh apples are one of the greatest things in the world! They are crispy, juicy, nutritious and basically just a ball of joy in fruit form! As you've seen in my earlier posts.. they can be used for manythings, such as rolling out your feet! But here's a much more delicious way to prepare them.. in your very own Tarte aux Pommes! 

First, you must pick a bunch of apples from your tree out back and then wash, slice and dice them up! We are going to make applesauce! So the smaller they are the faster they cook! 
Next, toss them into a saucepan with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and a little water and saute until soft.

Once they are soft, you can mash them up to make your apple sauce. It should be very thick and not runny so it doesn't make your tarte all soggy.

Next, make your pastry dough and shape it into a disk. Wrap in saran wrap then place in fridge to chill while you go to the gym and have a workout. If you don't need a paper towel to wipe the sweat, you aren't working hard enough!

Return home and shower and preheat your oven. Now its time to roll out your dough and place into a tarte pan with a removable bottom. Bake until just barely browned.

Thinly splice a few apples and toss with melted butter, cinnamon, honey 
 and then start your assembly line!

Spread applesauce all over, top with toasted almonds, rum plumped craisins and raisins, and then place the sliced apples on top! 

Bake in the oven until golden!

Et Voila! Une Belle Tarte aux Pommes! Bon Apetit!
