Apple Tart

by Jen on November 17, 2011

Good morning!  How are you today?  I’m cleaning the house.  It feels like I’m always cleaning the house though, so what’s new!

I thought it was time for a dessert recipe.  It’s been a while since I’ve posted one, and even though I’m all about healthy living and eating, I’m also about treating yourself once in a while.  Because life just wouldn’t be the same without a slice of Rainbow Cake!

Now that apples are in back in season, I wanted to make a dessert with, you guessed it, apples!  Typically, when you think of an apple dessert you think of pie.  Well, I do anyway.  But, since I’ve never perfected the art of pie making, I thought it would be better to make an apple tart.  Tarts are sooooo much easier to make than pies.  And this recipe is super easy.  And I made it even easier by buying a pre-made pie crust.  Don’t judge.  Just make it.

One word – DELICIOUS!  I love the glaze drizzled over top, it’s the perfect finishing touch.  The cinnamon and sweet apples are perfect.  And I love the fact that you are getting a serving of fruit with this dessert wlEmoticon winkingsmile2 Apple Tart
