TWD: Tarte Fine

After a few weeks of skipping out on the TWD posts I'm back!  and what a fabulous and easy recipe to come back with!  Seriously, it took about 5 minutes to put together, much thanks to my handy-dandy apple peeler and corer:
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 :)
Much thanks to Leslie of Lethally Delicious for this awesome pick! (and be sure to check her blog or p. 315 of Baking from my Home to Yours for the recipe).  Also be sure to check out the TWD leave your link post to see who baked along this week!


  1. Who could resist such a beautiful tart?!? I think you made a wise choice to go with apple jelly, it just adds more apple flavor. Thanks for baking with me this week!

  2. I just realized after reading your post tht i forgot to glaze th tart when it was finisihed. It was still good, just not shiny and pretty. Your apple slices are beautiful. Need to find my peeler.

    Lovely tarte.

  3. i've always wanted one of those apple contraptions...they look like so much fun! great that your husband loved the tart!

  4. Looks great! We had one of those apple peelers/slicers growing up and it was just about the best invention ever. Glad you guys loved it and that the husband wanted to keep more for himself--that IS the best seal of approval!

  5. great idea to use the apple jelly!

  6. Your tart looks great! I have always wanted one of those apple peelers/slicers, and now that I see one in action, I want it even more! Glad you're back with TWD!
