Tarte Tatin

Day 61 Recipe 37
What is a tarte tatin you ask?? It is an upside down caramel apple tart. First you start with butter and sugar in the bottom of an oven proof frying pan. Then you stand cut up apples in the pan, squeezing in as many as you can. Cooking it on the oven, the butter and the sugar bubble up in between the apples and essentially caramelizing. Then you top with a pie crust and bake in the oven. The tricky part was flipping it over onto a plate!! This recipe was created by 2 sisters when they were all ready to make an apple pie and realized that they only had one crust. Not wanting to waste the apples, they made this tart instead.

My apples didn't turn out as caramelized as in the picture in the cookbook, but it was still a very yummy alternative to the traditional apple pie!

I took a picture before I flipped it out of the pan, just in case it ended up all over my counter!!
