May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
I have not visited this board for over a year. I am retired and live a rather secluded life in a small town. Now that I had a chance to come to the big city and visit my friends, I will leave you with another recipe.

Dear Pierre, Merci!

You come to town so rarely and when you do you remember to bring us a recipe. This sounds delicious and so easy to make.

I found a picture of some little tarts,(yours can be made smaller as well).These somewhat resemble your tarts ,except you overlap the apples which makes them much more juicy.

Dear Pierre,

This is a treat, for my sweetest, unsatiable pie is my favorite dessert,,,and now, I will try Pierre's Apple Tart...

Looks so easy to prepare, and 3 large tarts is perfect...2 for my son, and one for me((smiling)).

I am in a rather secluded, small town myself, and I can resonate with your trip to a bigger city...still now, after many years, I still feel facinated with the big city hustle and bustle, though I admit truthfully, I prefer and adore, the much more sedated, tranquil life of small-town living...

I am new to this cool forum/board, and just thought I'd say hello, and thank you for the delicious recipe Pierre.
