Apple Tarte Tatin

Apple Tarte Tatin

Happy New Year! The beginning of 2012 seems like the perfect time to start this blog!  I am so excited to show my photography on here. I have thousands of photos so I didn't know where to start and was feeling overwhelmed. Well, why not start fresh with new photos from the start of the New Year?  I am feeling inspired and hope you will be too! 

Who wouldn't love apples baked with sugar and cinnamon with pastry crust? This dessert didn't last long in our house. Recipe for an Apple Tarte Tatin is below.

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch crust pie.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
3 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line outside of a 9 inch springform pan with foil.  Spread butter into pan and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Arrange apple slices into an overlapping pattern over sugar and cinnamon layer.  Cover apples with pastry, trimming sides.  Place pan on baking sheet.  Bake in pre-heated oven for one hour, allow to cool and then release sides of pan.  Place large plate over pastry, then invert so apple layer is on top.  Remove pan and serve. 

We had our Apple Tarte Tatin with ice cream. Enjoy!

  3. Is this super sweet? I'm looking for an apple tart recipe that is nor really sugary but kinda sour if that makes sense?

  4. You could cut the amount of sugar in half to reduce the sweetness.
