I don't know if you've ever seen or used one of these things before, but it is fabulous! It cuts all the apple peel off in one long curly string, removes the core, and also spiral slices it! That made this recipe super easy b/c instead of having to slice the apple I just had to do one quick swipe of the knife down the center of the apple and voila! Perfectly even half slices!
going into the oven
the finished tart--so delicious!
Hubs & I each had a slice out of the oven and he loved it! I offered to send some to his best friend who he was going to see that evening and suggested sending half the tart but he wanted to keep more for himself! It is VERY rare that he gets so excited about anything I make so I happily obliged.
The only change I made to the recipe was to use apple jelly for the glaze rather than apricot jam--We're not big apricot fans and I just felt that it would complement the tart better :)
