Vintage Rose Kitchen: Rustic Apple Tart

Rustic Apple Tart slice with ice cream
A little while back I posted a link and information regarding French Food at Home and in particular referring to Sweet French Tarts. I love the simplicity of the programme and the recipes in general are well worth a try (at least once, is what I say).

Well, I'm proud to announce that I tried the Rustic Apple Tart (or Rough Apple Galette, as Laura calls it) and was pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy it was to make. And very tasty to boot! I will definitely make it again as it seems the family really enjoyed it too!

My comments :

  • The perfectionist in me was quite "perturbed" by the "rustic" appearance - which is the point after all - but I kept thinking it should look neater - LOL!

  • I found I needed to cook it a little longer than the recipe suggested.
  • I will partially precook the apples, as some were still a little "chewy" after baking.

All in all though, a worthwhile exercise in french tart making. Give it a go, you'll be pleasantly surprised and you'll have learnt something new too!!

PS. 28.10.09: Forgot to add that due to time constraints I used ready made pastry.
