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.
Preparation 15 minutes
Baking time 2o minutes
Ingredients For 6 servings, or 3 tarts
7 inches (18 cm) wide
7 ounces (200 g) flaky pastry, can be bought frozen.
5 cooking apples, peeled, cored, quartered
Confectioner's sugar to sprinkle on tarts.
4 tablespoons (60g) butter.
3 tablespoons creme fraiche or heavy cream, optional.
Preheat oven to 450F or 240C.
Roll out flaky pastry until it is 1/4 inch or 3mm thick. Cut dow into 3 circles, placing excess dough into centre of each circle. Roll out each circle until it is 7 inches or 18cm wide. Place them on a buttered baking sheet.
Brush each circle with a bit of butter which has been melted.Cut the quartered apples in half and place in a circle on the rolled out circles of dough. Sprinkle generously with confectioner's sugar. Place small dabs of butter on top of the sugar.
Bake tarts in 450F or 240C oven for about 20 minutes. 5 minutes before the end of baking, sprinkle each tart again with confectioner's sugar to glaze the fruit.
Serve warm with or without the cream
